    Travel Vaccinations

Many countries require pre-departure vaccinations to immunize you from a range of diseases and illnesses.  It is paramount that you find out which immunizations you require before departure to ensure a healthy trip.

Visit your local GP or travel health clinic, or check out the World Health Organisation web site, which provides a plethora of health information for travellers.  

You should look into vaccinations as soon as you know where you are travelling, as certain vaccinations need to be taken over several weeks in the lead up to departure.  

The main diseases requiring pre-departure vaccination are Diphtheria, Hepatitis A, Hepatitis B, Japanese Encephalitis, Malaria, Meningitis, Polio, Rabies, Tetanus, Typhoid and Yellow Fever.

Many of these vaccinations with a booster can last for up to 10yrs following the initial course. To overlook the importance of vaccinations for these disease could lead to fatal consequences, or long-term illness.
