We highly recommend Vaccinations for all international travellers

The following vaccines may be recommended for your travel to South Asia. You should discuss your travel plans and personal health with a health-care provider to determine which vaccines you will need.

 

Hepatitis A: Recommended for all travellers. Transmission of hepatitis A virus can occur through direct person-to-person contact; through exposure to contaminated water, ice, or shellfish harvested in contaminated water; or from fruits, vegetables, or other foods that are eaten uncooked and that were contaminated during harvesting or subsequent handling.

 

Hepatitis B: especially if you might be exposed to blood or body fluids (for example, health-care workers), have sexual contact with the local population, or be exposed through medical treatment. Hepatitis B vaccine is now recommended for all infants and for children ages 11–12 years who did not receive the series as infants.

 

Typhoid: Typhoid fever can be contracted through contaminated drinking water or food, or by eating food or drinking beverages that have been handled by a person who is infected. Large outbreaks are most often related to faecal contamination of water supplies or foods sold by street vendors Vaccination are particularly important because of the presence of S.typhi strains resistant to multiple antibiotics in this region. There have been recent reports of typhoid drug resistance in India and Nepal.

 

Japanese encephalitis: if you plan to visit rural farming areas and under special circumstances, such as a known outbreak of Japanese encephalitis.

 

Hepatitis B: For travellers who may have intimate contact with local residents, especially if visiting for more than 6 months.

 

Rabies: For travellers who may have direct contact with animals and may not have access to medical care.

 

Routine immunizations: All travellers should be up-to-date on tetanus-diphtheria, measles-mumps-rubella, polio, and varicella immunizations.

 

Malaria: Malaria is always a serious disease and may be a deadly illness. Humans get malaria from the bite of a mosquito infected with the parasite. Prevent this serious disease by seeing your health care provider for a prescription anti-malarial drug and by protecting yourself against mosquito bites. Your risk of malaria may be high in these countries, including cities. Travellers to malaria-risk areas, including infants, children, and former residents of the Indian Subcontinent, should take an anti-malarial drug. NOTE: Chloroquine is NOT an effective anti-malarial drug in the Indian Subcontinent and should not be taken to prevent malaria in this region. Prevent this serious disease by seeing your health care provider for a prescription anti-malarial drug and by protecting yourself against mosquito bites.
