Travel Clinic Uxbridge / Hillingdon
Travelling abroad can be one of the things you look forward to. Packing stuff, getting to know the place better through the help guide, checking for tourist attractions and the best hotels available and the list goes on… However, there is one important item on our travel to-do list that most of us fail to check on… And that's travelling vaccination!
Why are vaccinations important?
Nobody loves getting vaccinated but sometimes travelling abroad involves a lot of risks. Chances are when you are enjoying the exotic food or places, you might end up contracting an exotic disease and You definitely don’t want to end up in a hotel room vomiting to yourself while others go out and enjoy. In worst scenarios, these diseases could be fatal and that’s why vaccines come in picture to offer you a prior barrier to repel these disease causing germs.
The science behind it
You are an easy victim since you do not have an exposure to this bacteria/ virus prior to this and hence no immunity is developed beforehand. This doesn’t mean that there would be some disease catching you instantly but just the commonly existing diseases specifically in that part of the world that you are extremely unlikely to encounter at home.
No matter whichever country you plan to visit, you should get approved vaccines to lower the chances of getting and spreading disease. The decision to get vaccinated while travelling is determined by the risk or the probability of getting attacked by a disease that may be prevalent in the destination country. There are various facilities available at our travel clinics based in Uxbridge and Hillingdon.
