Escape from winter to exotic? Why not, but be sure to be vaccinated!

Domestic cold moons are a favorite period of cognitive and relaxing trips to Asia, South America and Africa. Going to these exotic destinations without vaccination is of course high risk. How can you get infected?

1. Hepatitis

Familiarity with local gastronomy is one of the most popular but also risky activities for travelers. Foods which are not heat-treated and easily contaminated under the worse hygiene conditions can be a source of hepatitis A infection. Vaccination against this infectious disease is therefore one of the basic traveler's vaccinations.

2. Abdominal typhus

Equally important is vaccination against typhoid fever - an infectious disease caused by Salmonella typhi. With this disease, tourists can get contaminated with contaminated water and food. The vaccine needs to be thought of especially when traveling to Asia, Central and South America and Africa . In addition to vaccinations that travelers should plan several weeks before departure, permanent hand hygiene is important throughout their stay abroad. The basis is to drink only bottled water and caution when eating salads, fruits and meals from street vendors.

3. Rabbits

Some sites ask for rabies vaccination. The reason is a large number of stray dogs that can attack tourists. Protection against viral diseases of the central nervous system is appropriate when traveling to Latin America, Southeast Asia and sub-Saharan Africa .

4. Tetanus

If you carefully take care of the usual "non-healing" vaccinations and booster feeding, you will surely have it against the tetanus. This vaccination is also needed when exotic wandering. So, when planning your vacation, you should check the last time you were vaccinated against the tetanus.

5. Pneumococcal and meningococcal infections

If you have previously considered a vaccine against these two illnesses, traveling to distant countries may be the ultimate impulse to action. For example, for Thailand, it is typical for a large concentration of people in many places of interest - pneumococcal and meningococcal infections can easily spread here. Vaccination against these diseases will provide protection against health problems both in traveling and in everyday life.
