    What travel vaccinations are required for different gap year destinations?


    Gap years can be an exciting time. They can be a chance to discover yourself, a chance to have an adventure or simply a time to have fun and make the most of being young. If you plan on going abroad, make sure you are aware of the vaccinations required before travelling to avoid a serious travel accident.

    Travelling to Europe? Avoid a travel accident claim by reading this

    If you are travelling around Europe the good news is that this is one of the continents where it is easier to avoid having a travel accident through diseases such as malaria. There are no countries that require vaccinations and the majority of European countries simply recommend you are up to date with the standard tetanus, polio and Hepatitis A.

    If you are travelling in areas for longer than 3 months some countries do suggest you are immunised against diphtheria, rabies and hepatitis B to avoid a nasty travel accident including such places as; Belarus, Albania and Latvia.

    African travel? Make sure you read this to avoid a travel accident illness

    Africa is a whole other story compared with Europe when it comes to travel illnesses and diseases. It has a very high rate of yellow fever, malaria and Dengue. To avoid a serious travel accident claim make sure you consult your doctor and advise him everywhere you are going in Africa so they can dispense all the vaccinations you need.

    These vaccinations are vital as without them you could become seriously ill or worse so to avoid having to make a travel accident claim always consult your doctor.

    Asia

    Before travelling to Asia you need to make sure you get your vaccinations as yet again they have a high risk of malaria, but also Japanese Encephalitis and Dengue depending on where you travel. Any of these illnesses could cause a serious and possibly life threatening travel accident.

    America

    Central and South America have high risk of yellow fever, Dengue, malaria and chloroquine so as before make sure you consult your doctor to help prevent a nasty travel accident illness. North America is slightly better as there is only a risk of yellow fever and dengue.

    All these illnesses can cause serious travel accident claims. If you do have a travel accident whilst abroad speak to Accident Advice Helpline to see if you could make a claim.
