Good management of common pre-travel health care issues can be the only difference between life and death during travel. At Zenith Medical Centre, we partnered with you as you go for that desired holiday or honeymoon. In this age of technology, you being away does not stop your communication with your doctor.
Whatever your destination, the best possible travel preparation is essential to protecting your health and the health of your family members.
Some vaccines are compulsory and you will have difficulty crossing the borders of some countries without correct documentation about them. For example Yellow fever vaccine is compulsory for parts of Africa and South America and Meningitis vaccine for Saudi Arabia at time of the Haj.
Other vaccines are highly recommended for your own health and safety but you will not be asked for documentation when you pass international borders.
During your travel consultation, we also discus with you specific needs by following the relevant guidelines that can furnish you with current available information.
It is not just about vaccine and tablets, how about the climate forecast, proneness to terrorism and natural disasters.
No matter where you are going, it is recommended that you ensure your childhood vaccines are up to date-usually within the last 10 years eg. Polio vaccine, Diphtheria, Tetanus and Measles vaccines. We also advise every traveller to consider a Flu vaccine.
Other things to consider will include issues around your Travel Checklist, Travelling with prescription medication; Travellers' Medical Kits; Jet lag issues and your preparations; Insect avoidance measures, Eating and drinking safely, Diseases transmitted through food and water, Travelling with children, Vaccination side effects, Altitude sickness, Women's health issues during while travel; Deep Venous Thrombosis; Heart and Lung disease and travel; Diabetes and travel, Your Health and cruise ships, The pregnant traveller and Sexually Transmitted. These and many more are the reasons to plan well ahead with your General Practitioner
