Immunisation and Vaccination for Adults

Vaccination is the most effective way to protect against infectious diseases; it saves lives, improves health and helps prevent the spread of infections.

Travel-related vaccines

Not every traveller needs every vaccine and different vaccines may be recommended for travel to different continents of the world.
