Vaccination can be advisable if you travel to a country where there are many contagious diseases or work in a profession involving a high risk of contracting an infectious disease.
In some countries you might contract annoying, or even dangerous infectious diseases, such as diarrhoea, skin problems, hepatitis A, malaria, yellow fever or sexually transmitted diseases. To an extent you can protect yourself against these by inoculation and by taking tablets. For travel vaccines and information about travel and health, go to Ease Travel Clinic & Health Support:

Some professions involve a higher risk of contracting an infectious disease. This applies, for instance, if you work in health care. This makes it important to be inoculated against hepatitis B. This disease can be transmitted via infected blood and contaminated needles.
