Numerous contagious diseases in Australia are effectively managed through extensive vaccination programs and other healthcare initiatives. Unfortunately, this level of control is not prevalent in many other countries, where comprehensive vaccination and strict immunisation protocols are not followed. International travel can significantly increase health risks, and in rare instances, infections can have fatal consequences. Ensuring that you are up to date with your vaccinations is the best way to mitigate the risk of contracting a potentially fatal disease while overseas.
Vaccines work by introducing a small amount of the disease into the body, which subsequently strengthens the immune system and promotes the development of immunity. By choosing not to vaccinate you significantly increase the risk of contracting preventable diseases when visit other countries.
Regardless of where you may be heading, it is strongly recommended to ensure that your vaccinations are up to date. Health risks can vary significantly from one country to another, with the possibility of emerging outbreaks in specific regions. Certain countries may even impose entry restrictions if your vaccinations are not up to standard. This is why it is important to consult with the highly experienced travel doctors at Northbridge Medical Centre in Perth before finalizing your travel plans.
