Planning a trip? Don’t forget your travel vaccinations! There’s a lot to look forward to, and also a lot to do when planning a trip abroad. Between booking accommodations and sightseeing excursion, there may be one thing you haven’t considered – your travel vaccinations. To prevent illness, it’s important to plan ahead so you can avoid any potential serious illnesses or diseases and enjoy your vacation to its fullest. Following a travel vaccination checklist is a simple way to make sure you’re completely protected so you can prevent illness.
The next time you travel abroad, follow this comprehensive travel vaccination checklist to remain healthy during your travels.
Travel Vaccination Check List:
Visit your local Village Pharmacy Travel Vaccine Clinic at least six weeks before your departure date for a consultation. Your travel health specialist will prescribe the necessary vaccinations for your travel destination. Since some travel vaccinations require multiple doses over the course of a few weeks, it’s important to allow enough time before your departure to receive the full dosage for it to provide maximum protection. Some vaccinations also need time to be absorbed by the body and build up your immunity.
Below is a travel vaccination checklist of vaccine-preventable travel-related diseases that are not covered by routine adult vaccinations:
