Travel Vaccines

Why are travel vaccinations important?

Travel vaccinations are important because they help protect you from diseases and infections that you may come into contact with when visiting foreign countries, especially those with exotic locations. These vaccinations are crucial because your body may not have immunity to the pathogens present in these regions, which can lead to severe illness or even death.

How travel vaccines Works?

Travel vaccines work by stimulating your immune system to produce antibodies against specific diseases. When you receive a vaccine, you are injected with a solution that mimics the invading pathogen. This prompts your immune system to recognize and respond to the threat by producing antibodies. These antibodies are specialized white blood cells that can recognize and neutralize the specific infection. Therefore, if you encounter the actual bacteria or virus during your travels, your immune system will be prepared to fight it off before it can cause harm.

It is important to receive travel vaccinations at least 21 days before your trip to allow your body enough time to develop the necessary antibodies for maximum protection. Some vaccines, such as Rabies, may require even longer lead times.
