Travelling overseas can come with risks of contracting certain illnesses, depending on the conditions in a particular destination. Vaccinations are important before you travel anywhere to ensure that you are well-protected and to prevent any roadblocks with your trip. In many cases, you may be required to show proof of your vaccination to be permitted entry or exit in certain countries.
The Vaccinations that you need to get will depend on your health condition and the place you are travelling to, but there are a few general vaccines that will be beneficial for all cases. These include hepatitis-B, chickenpox, typhoid fever, measles, and the flu. However, you should consult with your physician to know if there are specific vaccines to look out for based on your destination.
Aside from Vaccinations, Prophylaxis is also required if you are travelling to areas with malaria. This procedure typically involves taking a particular medicine before your trip, usually about two weeks before you travel. It will continue even during your travel, as well as up to four weeks after you get back from your trip. Talk to your doctor about this to get more specific guidelines.
