Have Vaccinations, Will Travel

According to the Australian Bureau of Statistics, six of the top 10 travel destinations for Aussies are Asian countries. Generally, the three recommended vaccines for travellers to the region (especially Southeast Asia) are typhoid, hepatitis A and B, and influenza. Additionally, country-specific jabs are often required, and these can be found on the Travel Vax website.

Before you pack your bags, it’s a good idea to get a general check-up and essential that you’re up-to-date with scheduled immunisations like tetanus, diphtheria, whooping cough, and measles.
