Travel Clinic

Are you about to head off on your gap year of travel? Are you getting ready for your spiritual journey to Mecca for Hajj or Umrah? Or are you jetting off for a few days on a business trip to a more exotic country?

Wherever you are going in this world, the Periville Pharmacy Travel Clinic in Spalding, Lincolnshire is here to keep you safe and protected along your way.

Why are travel vaccinations important?

When you travel to a more exotic country, you may be exposed to pathogens that your body does not have protection against. We call this protection “immunity”, hence the word “immunisations”. This may lead to infection and disease, for example, Hepatitis A or Yellow Fever which will, of course, lead to illness. In some cases, these illnesses can be very severe or even fatal. By having a vaccination, or multiple before you travel, you will develop protection against them. This is extremely important because some of these diseases are often life-threatening.

How do travel vaccines work?

Travel vaccines work in very similar ways to each other. There are many different types that provide immunity against a variety of diseases. Essentially, a solution injected into you mimics the invading pathogen of the disease. This stimulation then prompts your immune system to produce antibodies (white blood cells) designed to fight off the specific infection. Therefore, if you ever encounter a bacteria or virus, your defence system will eliminate it before it can harm you.

Ideally, you should get vaccinated at least 21 days (sometimes more for others, such as the Rabies vaccine) before you travel to your destination. This will ensure that your body has time to produce all the antibodies needed for maximum protection.
