What are travel vaccinations?

According to the World Health Organization, travel vaccines are vaccines recommended to provide you protection against different diseases endemic to the country of origin or of destination. They are intended to protect you as well as prevent disease spread within and between countries while travelling.

International travel increases your chances of getting and spreading diseases that are rare or not found in Australia. It’s important to plan ahead, be up-to-date on all of your routine vaccines, and to find out which travel vaccines you may need to help you stay healthy on your trip. Make sure to set an appointment with your healthcare provider at least a month before you travel. This way you can share more about your travel plans and receive more information on destination-specific vaccines, medicine, as well as specific health recommendations for your travels.
