Why are travel vaccinations important?

When you travel to a more exotic country, you may be exposed to pathogens that your body does not have protection against.
We call this protection “immunity”, hence the word “immunisations”. This may lead to infection and disease, for example, Hepatitis A or Yellow Fever which will, of course, lead to illness. In some cases, these illnesses can be very severe or even fatal. By having a vaccination, or multiple before you travel, you will develop protection against them. This is extremely important because some of these diseases are often life-threatening.

How do travel vaccines work?

Travel vaccines work in very similar ways to each other and there are many different types that provide immunity against a variety of diseases. Essentially, you’re injected with a solution that mimics the invading pathogen of the disease. This will then stimulate your immune system to produce antibodies (white blood cells) that are designed to fight off the specific infection. Therefore, if you’re ever exposed to the bacteria or virus, your defence system will kill it before any harm can be done to you.

Ideally, you should get vaccinated for at least 21 days (sometimes more for others such as the Rabies vaccine) before you travel to your destination. This will ensure that your body has time to produce all the antibodies needed for maximum protection.
