Patrington Pharmacy Travel Clinic in Patrington is available to keep you protected and safe all the way no matter your destination all over the world.
Why do you need travel vaccinations?
Your body may not be able to protect you against certain pathogens when you visit a more exotic country. This protection is referred to as immunity, hence the term ‘immunisation.’ This may result in infections such as Yellow Fever and Hepatitis A which will lead to illness in the long run. You can develop protection against them by receiving one or a number of vaccinations. It is extremely vital considering some of these illnesses are usually life-threatening.
How travel vaccines work
Travel vaccines work in the same manner even though they are numerous and provide immunity to different types of illnesses. Basically, the injection includes a solution that mimics the pathogens in question. This solution will then trigger the production of white blood cells (antibodies) that enable your immune system to fight off the infection. Therefore, your immune system will kill the virus or bacteria that you might expose yourself to before they can bring any harm to your body.
Preferably, you should receive the vaccinations at least 21 days before you depart to your destination. Others such as the Rabies vaccine require more time. This will give your body enough time to produce all the antibodies required for maximum protection.
