Sometimes Recommended Vaccines
Hepatitis B is the leading cause of liver cancer world wide. It is a virus transmitted via blood and sexual contact. It can be easily prevented through a vaccination programme as outlined below, which then lasts for life.
The rabies vaccination is an inactivated vaccine containing dead virus. It cannot cause the disease in the vaccinated individual, but allows effective antibodies to form against the virus which can defend the body quickly if exposure to rabies virus occurs.
Vaccination prior to travel to be considered for anyone going to live in or who are travelling to high risk destinations. This is particularly important if their travel activities are likely to increase the risk of exposure, such as trekking or travel in rural areas. It should also be considered if travelling to countries or areas where post exposure medical care may not be accessible within 24 hours.
The rabies jab is particularly important for children going to live or stay for prolonged periods in high risk destinations, as they have an increased chance of being exposed and developing symptoms rapidly.
