What vaccines will I need for traveling?
Vaccine requirements will vary depending several factors including previous vaccination history, destination, planned activities etc. so it's not possible to give a simple answer to the question of which vaccines are required.
Commonly needed vaccines for travel to certain parts of Asia, Africa and America include Hepatitis A, Typhoid, Tetanus and Diphtheria.
Hepatitis B vaccine may be recommended for certain at-risk groups, those who may be exposed to bodily fluids or those who plan to be traveling for extended periods.
Rabies vaccine may be required if you will be staying or trekking in remote or jungle areas in some countries, or working with animals.
Rabies and Hepatitis B vaccines both require a course of 3 injections at intervals over the course of 28 days so make sure to make your appointment with plenty of time to spare.
Yellow Fever vaccination is the only vaccine that is compulsory for entry into certain countries. You can be refused entry into about 44 African and Latin American countries if you do not have proof of vaccination. Eastgate Medical is a Registered Yellow Fever Centre and can provide vaccination and certification to persons who require this.
