Here’s some things to consider before travelling:
Health risks at your destination - depending on where you are travelling you may need specific vaccines. Some vaccines need to be given over a course rather than in a single dose. If you’ve had travel vaccinations before it’s worthwhile checking if you still have immunity. Some travel vaccinations offer long-lasting protection while others require booster doses.
General travel risks - blood clots, altitude sickness, traveller’s gastro and influenza can affect anyone. Ask your doctor for advice for your specific needs.
Chronic or pre-existing health issues - be sure to see your doctor for a health checkup before you leave. You may need to order extra medication depending on the length of your trip and many countries require a letter from your GP outlining the details of your prescription medication and what it is needed for.
