The Essential Travel Vaccination Package

-(Hepatitis A/Typhoid and Diptheria/Tetanus/polio)

Hepatitis A

A viral illness, which causes inflammation of the liver (hepatitis). Generally the majority affected, but a small number can develop acute live failure (typically the elderly). Travellers are commonly infected when they eat contaminated food/water.

Age rangeNumber of dosesInterval Between dosesBooster Requirement
From 1 year of age2 doses6-12 monthsBooster required after 25 years for ongoing risk

Typhoid

Typhoid fever  is a serious bacterial infection transmitted when travellers eat contaminated food or water. It is most commonly seen in developing countries with poor sanitation.

Age rangeMethod of AdministrationNumber of doses
From 2 years of ageIntramuscular injection to the deltoid muscle1 dose

Diphtheria/Tetanus/polio

Tetanus is a serious infection caused by the bacterium Clostridium tetani’s spores, which are found in soil and animal manure. These spores gain entry through weak points such as abrasions or minor cuts.  Infection can lead to severe damage to the nervous system pathways.  Tetanus spores are widespread across the world but certain countries are considered at higher risk.

 

Yellow Fever Vaccine

Recommended vaccination  Yellow fever

The yellow fever inoculation contains a live, but weakened version of the virus, which confers immunity for LIFE.

Since July 2016, the yellow fever vaccination certificate is recognised by the WHO, as valid for “the life of the traveller”.

Inclusion Criteria

The yellow fever jab can be given to clients from 9 months of age who are travelling to a country with risk.

Additionally, the vaccination may be a mandatory entry requirement where:

  • the country has a high risk of of the condition and requires all visitors on entry to provide a yellow fever certificate
  • the country does not have yellow fever , but has potential to establish the infection due to the presence of the required type of  mosquito (and monkey) population needed for the virus to establish there. In this circumstance, the yellow fever certificate is only required if you are arriving from a recognised yellow fever country.

Vaccine Schedule

AgeMethod of AdministrationNumber of Doses
From 9 months of ageSubcutaneous injection to the thigh or deltoid region of the upper arm1
