Is It Important To Have Travel Vaccinations ?

Why is it important to Book your travel vaccines?

Travel Vaccines  it  isn’t typically the first thing on our mind when we plan for a thrilling
excursion abroad.

Nonetheless, travel vaccines should be one of the main things on our
‘holiday to do list’ as some vaccines need up to 8 weeks for them to become effective.

We make it easy The Chemist Live offers an extensive travel clinic service, assisting travellers to have optimum protection
from serious illnesses found in different regions of the world such as;

Typhoid Fever

Hepatitis A

Hepatitis B

Cholera

Rabies

Malaria

Diphtheria

Tetanus

Polio

Japanese Encephalitis 


What Are Travel Vaccines and how do they function?

A vaccine is a specific kind of medication that trains the body’s immune system so that it can
battle an infection it has not yet come into contact with previously.

Vaccination is a precaution measure, instead of treatment for a disease once you have caught it.

My immune system is strong you say ?  It is important to remember it is  much better for your body and health  to prevent a disease rather than endure the affect it can have on you. Also certain diseases like Rabies are almost always fatal.


Why do I need Travel Vaccines?

When travelling abroad, you might be exposed to infectious diseases such as yellow fever,
hepatitis B that the standard NHS immunisation plan doesn’t give protection against. Thus
you should try to receive appropriate travel vaccinations to remain protected during your
whole trip.


What travel vaccines do I need?

The Travel vaccines that you would require for your specific trip will depend on your destination, your activities there and the season. Your travel clinic professional at The Chemist Live will be able to advise you on this, you can also get a idea of this on the NHS Fit to Travel site and NATHNAC website.


When should I see my local health professional about travel vaccines and how long does
vaccines cover last?

We advise you to start thinking about your travel vaccines as soon as practically possible.
Vaccines takes a while to develop immunity in your body or to become affective, and some
vaccines need to be administered in a number of doses over several weeks period. Vaccines
like rabies requires a month to complete the course.

Some vaccines last for a few years while others lasts for life. If you’re unsure whether you
are still covered or if you require a booster then you can always give us a call on 0161 543 6622 or drop and email to admin@thechemistlive.co.uk
