Travel Vaccinations & Medical Tips

If you are planning an overseas trip, it is worth visiting your doctor before-hand as for some countries proof of vaccination can be a visa entry requirement.

Ignoring the risk of being turned back at the border, it is crucial for your health and safety to be properly vaccinated. International travellers should, as a general rule ensure that they are vaccinated for:

  • Tetanus
  • Polio
  • MMR
  • Influenza
  • Pneumococca
  • lV aricella
  • Yellow Fever
  • Cholera
  • Meningococcal
  • Hepatitis A, B
  • Typhoid
  • Japanese Encephalitis
  • Poliomyelitis
  • Rabies
  • Cholera

Some of these diseases are common in developing countries, so make sure you are vaccinated! Also, don't leave it to the last minute. In some cases, the inoculation requires booster shots over a series of days - so if you leave it until the day before you travel, you will be unable to obtain a total vaccination.
