Did you know that over 1 million people travel internationally each day? Some travellers may visit modern and westernized countries like the US and Europe where life-threatening diseases are rare because the majority of the population has been vaccinated.
While other, more adventurous, travellers like to explore more exotic third-world countries, some of which are considered high risk for certain diseases such as Yellow Fever, Malaria, Hepatitis A, Cholera, and others. It’s important to know which travel vaccinations you need to get prior to your trip. The best way to understand what vaccines you need is to visit a travel clinic.
Travel Clinics provide expert advice on, vaccinations, medication, and how to prevent traveller sickness that’s tailored to you and your travel plans.
Travel is a great way to explore new cultures, foods, and places, however, it does require careful planning and preparation to make sure you travel smartly to prevent sickness.

Why Visit a Travel Clinic
A travel clinic expert will advise you on what travel vaccines you need for your trip, and how long in advance you need to get them. The preventative effects of a vaccine are not always immediate. There are some vaccines that require multiple doses spread out over a few weeks. To allow sufficient time for the vaccination protection you need, plan to visit a travel clinic at least eight weeks before you leave.
