Why do you need Vaccinations Before Traveling?
While not all travel will require vaccinations, some areas of the world are prone to specific diseases or infections. If you visit these destinations without proper vaccinations, you would become infected and bring the disease back to the United States. Travel vaccinations administered before you leave will ensure you don’t contract these diseases and infections. You’ll be able to stay healthy during your trip and your return home. Some countries do require specific proof of vaccinations before you can enter the country, as well.
What type of Diseases and infections may occur due to Travel?
The potential diseases and infections you may encounter during travel depend on the destination. Commonly, viral, fungal, bacterial, and parasitic infections may be contracted through food or water in a foreign land. You may even contract an infection due to contact with a contaminated person or surface. Along with infections, some of the illnesses contracted during travel include travelers diarrhea, yellow fever, malaria, and dengue fever. Other diseases may also be found in tropical or subtropical regions and may cause serious respiratory and digestive issues.
The diseases and infections you may encounter in specific areas of the world may cause symptoms throughout your trip and for months after you return. Some diseases may even cause permanent disability or become fatal.
