When traveling abroad, it is likely that you will need to get certain travel vaccines in order to protect yourself and your loved ones from infectious and potentially harmful diseases that could lead to temporary or permanent disability or even death.
Travel vaccinations in Mt. Gravatt or anywhere else in the world, are usually administered at least 4-6 weeks prior to your travel dates, as vaccines need time to take effect. Hence they should be an integral part of your travel plans, and you should consult a travel doctor in Mt Gravatt or a clinic close to you as early as possible in order to plan it out.
Children can be more susceptible to diseases, and hence, if you are hoping to travel with children, make sure that they get their travel vaccines done. Some standard travel vaccines which may be required are given below, however, it is important to remember that these requirements will differ from country to country and your travel doctor in Mt Gravatt or a clinic close to you will be able to advise you on what is required.
- Japanese Encephalitis.
- Yellow Fever.
You should also make sure that your children have been given their regular age-specific vaccinations against diseases like Measles, Mumps, Rubella, Hepatitis A, and Hepatitis B so that they are protected from these diseases which may be rampant in the countries you are traveling to. Always take your child’s vaccination history and show it to your travel doctor before you get their vaccines done.
Although your children may have already gotten certain vaccines, it is likely that they will require a booster dose before travel, in order to fully protect them from these diseases.
Children may get mild side effects from vaccines such as fever and body aches, however, the benefits they get from vaccinations far outweigh the temporary side effects.
Enjoy your travels and stay safe from harmful diseases with travel vaccines.
