Travel Health

You are more likely to fall sick during travel due to preparation stress, travel excitement and physiological adjustments to the new environment at your destination. Neglect towards your health during travel can cause your travel experience to shift from enjoyable moments to medical emergencies. Health and disease protection is a pre-requisite for an enjoyable travel experience that is hassle-free and illness-free. Travel vaccination is recommended to protect travelers from illnesses present in other countries and to prevent the spread of infectious disease across international borders. Some vaccinations are compulsory for travel into certain countries-the meningococcal vaccination is required by the Saudi Arabia for annual travel during the Haji.

TRAVEL VACCINATION

Obtain travel vaccinations at BP Diagnostic Centres nationwide. All travelers are recommended to see a doctor at least 4 weeks before travel for appropriate vaccination and travel health consultation because most vaccines take time or may require several doses to boosts immunity in your body.
At BP Diagnostic Centre, we offer vaccination reminder services through SMS for booster doses. The required travel vaccination a traveler needs may be tailored according to factors such as the destination, whether time is spent in rural areas, the season in which travel takes place, age, previous immunisations and the traveler’s health status.
TWP While children are advised to complete routine childhood immunisations on a normal schedule whenever possible, traveling at an earlier age may require accelerated schedules for disease protection during travel. Women of reproductive age should maintain current immunisations to ensure disease protection is not compromised in the case of an unplanned pregnancy coinciding with a need to travel.
