Vaccination breakthroughs made people worldwide safer from infectious and fatal causing diseases. Most developed countries are able to reduce if not eliminated certain infectious diseases that harmed their countries in previous years. The fact that immunization of children is being highly implemented in developed countries is a sign of the many benefits provided by vaccination.

Children and adults are being required to have their immunization in preventing them from contracting contagious and harmful diseases. Awareness on vaccination is very important especially when you are planning to travel. Although vaccination is being implemented globally, there are parts of the world that would require you to have completed most of your vaccine shots.

Asia, Africa and South America are parts of the world where you need to have most of your vaccines to keep you safe and free from health risks. Short – term travellers in developing countries found in these three continents experience health problems associated with their travels. About 15% – 45% of these short – term travels get infected with infectious diseases like Cholera, Diarrhea, Dengue Fever, Malaria, Yellow Fever and Typhoid Fever aside from the other common infectious disease like Hepatitis A and B, Polio, Influenza, Tuberculosis and Rabies.

World awareness in vaccination is essential for every country in preventing the spread of infectious diseases that may result to an epidemic if not prevented. Travellers who are planning to travel in developing countries should always consult their general practitioner prior to their travels. Medical histories are a good way in knowing which vaccinations have been received and which vaccinations are needed.

While most developed countries are able to finance the vaccines they need, third world countries and poor countries are still far from attaining a safer and healthier environment. Most vaccines available in these countries are either third rate or of poor quality. The effectiveness of their vaccines does not last long.

If you’re planning travelling in developing countries it is vital that you have your routine vaccinations check for your health and safety. Make sure that you are immunized for recommended vaccines as well as required vaccines.

Nothing is better than prevention. Keeping your health safe from contagious and fatal diseases is like saving the world from possible spread of epidemics which may be acquired from your travels. Vaccinations are known to reduced and eliminate the hazards from infectious diseases resulting to a safer and healthier environment.

While most parents are hesitant in having their children immunized because of lack of education and the controversies involving vaccines the risk of getting preventable – vaccine diseases are much higher compared to getting vaccinated.
