A decorated suitcase, changed money and the most up-to-date documents are essential on every journey, but to treat your health before, during and after your journey is necessary.
It starts from the moment when we are looking for a vacation card. Heavy equation in which: spouse holiday A + spouse holiday B + holiday = ks. Then the choice of destination: cultural or paradise? Children are looking for something "fun", adults want to rest at the same time, know new places, and also, if not for a lot, a site with the space for the youngest.
When the destination is finally selected, there are new accounts, between savings from subsidies, travel, stay. Little by little, expectations are rising, the days crossed the calendar in a religious way. It's definitely the final number. It will be an unforgettable holiday. But did he actually plan everything?
The journey starts at home.
The importance of travel planning should be more than economic. When planning a trip to international land, we must imperatively explore such important aspects as cultural and religious habits – and the word "in Rome, being Roman" also confirms this significance. Regardless of whether you agree with the rules or not, you should not break them, otherwise you can be banned in some places or insult the premises.
There is another statement that gets special weight before visiting other destinations: "Health is invaluable." This means that, instead of relying on happiness, you are looking for professional information about who you are going to. The travel advice just confirms, for example, vaccines that you have up-to-date, the ones you need for certain areas of the world, the special care you need … It's sort of a kind review adapted to special medical specialists from infectious diseases and tropical medicine, which will make you safer and more restless.
This consultation should be done about a month before travel and by all family members, as care and needs vary not only by destination, but also by age, physical condition and health status. In short: it is not appropriate to consult and believe that this is applicable, on a letter, to all elements, even if they all travel to the same place.
Be persistent about the signs
The importance of travel consultations is higher when traveling to a risk destination, but it is useful for any road. Pregnant women, elderly people and children need increased attention before, during and after the journey because they have multiple risk factors and a more sensitive immune system.
In the consultation, a recommendation was made for the necessary vaccines, but it is also cautious about the care that must be taken in the diet and water intake. Clothing in some destinations is of more than cultural significance – it can protect you, for example, from insect bites, which often carry dangerous diseases.
The doctor also advises which medicines a traveler should carry in his suitcase, signs that need to be known and how to act if there is any symptom. In the case of vaccines, the only one that the International Health Regulations prescribe as a must for yellow fever. However, there are other vaccines that are recommended by destination and protect against cholera, diphtheria, Japanese encephalitis, hepatitis A, hepatitis B, influenza, rabies, tetanus, and typhoid.
After a well deserved rest, you must not immediately drop the guard. Travel consultations also serve to diagnose possible travel problems and periodically control those who spend a long time in high-risk areas.
The National Health Service gives voice to the importance of traveling to safety and provides such consultation throughout the country. If you can not go to international vaccination on line, where a doctor can later vaccinate.
When traveling, you know: take and bring health with you.
