People in the UK often don’t now how lucky they are to live in a place with few endemic diseases. In addition to our location, advances in infrastructure and medicine have eradicated many serious illnesses that once plagued our nation. Unfortunately, many of these diseases are still widespread in parts of the world including popular tourist hotspots.
Travelling abroad significantly raises your risk of experiencing foreign illnesses and travel related illnesses. After spending so much time and money planning the perfect getaway, the last thing you want is to spend your holiday sick in bed or admitted to hospital.
You can prevent many of these illnesses with basic personal care and hygiene practices. Others can be easily prevented with vaccinations. Travel vaccinations are rarely available on the NHS so you’ll have to attend a private location like West Chemist’s travel vaccination clinic in Northampton.
