Be Protected For Travel
What do you need for your trip? Each traveller and itinerary is different which is why we always recommend having an individualised consultation rather than following a generic list. We have however picked some common regions and summarised the major health differences to give you an idea of some of the things that may be considered. The information is broad and general, may not include less commonly recommended vaccines and does not take into account your particular circumstance or itinerary.
As a starting point for all international travel we review routine immunisations, including tetanus, measles, chicken pox, whooping cough, influenza and hepatitis B, boosting when necessary. You also need to consider that whilst vaccination is a vital part of overseas travel preparation there are other important things we may discuss relevant for your itinerary, such as malaria, dengue and Zika, mosquito avoidance measures, travellers diarrhoea protection and treatment, altitude advice, personal safety, DVT risk and more.

South & Central America

Also known as Latin America, this region extends from Mexico in the north to Cape Horn in the south. The geography and climate change dramatically throughout, as do the people, culture, language and altitude. Health risks vary also and go well beyond vaccine advice. Yellow fever vaccination is required for entry and return in certain parts of South America and in part Panama. Food and water borne illness is higher risk, including hepatitis A and in parts typhoid fever, with cholera vaccine recommended for some. Rabies is present throughout. Common issues beyond vaccination include altitude sickness and malaria advice, in particular for travel to the Amazon basin.
