World health organization recommends that everyone who wishes to go for a trip should go to travel health clinic to get immunised with the necessary vaccines. This is mainly done to keep oneself safe, while they are travelling to different parts of the world or country.
Many people are not sure how a visit to the travel clinic would keep them safe. The few reasons that are attributed for the visit are:
- Getting sick on a trip can be expensive and it would be very difficult for the authorities to airlift to the home country.
- If an individual gets infected, then the chances of the individual infecting other and making them sick are high.
- Falling sick through a trip would jeopardise the trip and would need a trip to the emergency centre.
- In few cases, people would carry the infection home, putting the people of the home country in danger of getting infected.
Many countries have eradicated few diseases like yellow fever and polio, while few cases can be found in other regions. Travel vaccinations would mean that everyone would be safe and such diseases would not spread to other regions as well. In one way, it could mean ensuring safe and enjoyable trip.
