Holiday Traveller

Let us help you figure out what vaccinations you need for your travels.

    Some vaccinations need to be started six to eight weeks before departure. Book into a Travelvax Clinic today to start planning for your upcoming holiday.


    It's important to have the right vaccinations and health advice before you travel. Your safety and health are essential, especially if you want to enjoy your trip to the fullest. This is why you need to get the right advice - based on your medical history, duration and season of travel. The following is a brief guide on vaccine recommendations (aside from the routine ones) for some of the most visited locations around the world:

    Indonesia

    As a high risk location, vaccinations are essential for those visiting Indonesia and Bali. Recommended vaccines include Hepatitis A and B, influenza and typhoid. However, vaccinations for rabies, Japanese encephalitis and cholera may also be discussed for certain travellers. Indonesia is both beautiful and potentially dangerous, so it is important to understand all the risks.

    Thailand

    Similarly to Indonesia, vaccinations for Hepatitis A and B as well as typhoid and influenza are suggested for this location. While most of Thailand entails a lower risk, Travelvax recommends taking some precautions. More details can be found here.

    India

    India is a high risk location with a number of serious diseases to be wary of. Vaccinations are recommended for many of the more prevalent diseases, but may also be suggested for rabies and Japanese encephalitis.

    Vietnam

    Vaccination is recommended for common diseases such as Hepatitis A and B, typhoid and influenza for visitors of Vietnam. Other diseases such as Japanese encephalitis may be a risk for certain itineraries.

    Cambodia

    Similarly to Vietnam, Cambodia is medium risk and vaccinations are advised for common diseases like Hepatitis A and B, typhoid as well as influenza. Japanese encephalitis may also be a risk for some travellers. More details can be found here.

    China

    For those heading to China, it is suggested to be vaccinated for Hepatitis A, influenza and possibly typhoid, while for other vaccine preventable illnesses (such as rabies, Japanese and tick-borne encephalitis and cholera), recommendations will depend on the time of year, length of your trip and areas visited.

    Fiji

    Fiji is a popular tourist destination and some vaccinations are recommended: Hepatitis A & B and influenza, plus typhoid for those travelling to small cities and villages outside of the usual tourist routes. For other risks, go here.


    It is important to note that not all conditions are vaccine-preventable, such as malaria and dengue and that all travellers should also be up to date with routine immunisations like tetanus, diphtheria, whooping cough and measles before travel. Also, travellers’ diarrhoea is common in many developing countries and we can provide advice and treatments, just in case.
