What To Consider When Planning Travel Vaccines

Before having any type of travel vaccine there are a number of things you need to take into consideration, some of which are:

  • The country you’re travelling too – Diseases are more common in some parts of the world than others. There may be particular areas in a country where you’re more at risk of contracting a certain type of disease.
  • When you travel – The time of year can affect the vaccinations you’ll need such as during the rainy season.
  • Where you stay – If you’re travelling to rural or remote parts of the country then you’re likely to be more at risk of contracting disease, than if you stay in the city. If you are planning a city visit but are staying in a hostel or shared accommodation, then it could put you at higher risk.
  • How long you’ll be staying – The longer you stay in country the more at risk you’ll be of contracting a disease.
  • Age and health – People who already suffer from pre-existing medical conditions or are simply older and have weakened immune systems will likely to be more at risk of contracting travel diseases.
  • Plans during your stay – The plans you have when you travel abroad will also affect your need for travel vaccines such as if you’re on a business trip in the city or if you’re in a rural area.
  • Aid workers – If you’re working in a refugee camp or your helping in a developing country then you’ll come into contact with a number of diseases.
  • Medical settings – If you’re planning on working in a medical facility then you might require additional travel vaccinations when you go abroad.
  • Contact with animals – Animals can carry disease so if you’re going to be working with them or will come into contact with animals when you’re abroad, then you might require a particular set of travel vaccinations.
