Why Are Travel Vaccinations Important?
Throughout the world, there is a lot of beauty and a lot of harmful bacteria and viruses around us to ruin it. If you like to travel, it’s important that you keep yourself protected against infectious diseases, because otherwise you could be stuck with staggering medical costs or language barriers causing problems for your care.
DOCS Urgent Care of Orange can give you the vaccines necessary to be safe on your next trip. How a vaccine works is that a germ carrying the disease you’re trying to prevent (much weaker than a normal one) will be inserted into your skin through a syringe, and gradually building up your immune system’s resistance to the disease so you don’t get sick.
When To Get Vaccinated
Common Travel Vaccinations Include:
- Yellow Fever
- Japanese Encephalitis
- Hepatitis A (HEP A)
- Hepatitis B (HEP B)
- Hepatitis A
- Hepatitis B Combination
Which Vaccines Do I Need Before Traveling?
- Where you plan to travel: There are specific diseases you need to be vaccinated for before entering certain countries, such as yellow fever or polio. Developing countries may also expose you to more hygiene problems and diseases compared to others.
- Your health: You may need more vaccines if you are going through a medical event such as pregnancy or have an ongoing illness, along with weakened immune systems.
- The vaccinations you’ve already had: You need to stay up to date on vaccinations you’ve had and how they’re recorded. Some diseases that are rare in the United States are more common overseas and you may not be prepared for it.
