3 Travel Vaccination Suggestions for Business Travelers, Chantilly, Virginia

If your work requires you to visit locations out of the country, travel vaccinations are an important part of preparing for your business trip. HealthSmartVaccines in Chantilly, VA, provides vaccines to employees at multi-national corporations to help them avoid contracting any diseases while in the host country. They will also provide you with a travel nurse who will go over all precautions you should take and any health risks you could possibly face.

Travel vaccinations and precautions for business travelers are unique because their work could require extensive stays in foreign countries or recurrent trips, which can increase the risk of developing certain diseases. If you know that your work will require you to travel, here are a few vaccination tips you should follow:

  • Take Preemptive Measures: For many business travelers, trips can often come up at the last minute. However, many vaccinations are required to be administered at least a month before traveling to ensure the vaccine has developed an immune response. Also, if the location the person is visiting requires more than one travel vaccination, vaccines may need to be administered more than one month apart.travel vaccinations
  • Stay Up-To-Date On Routine Vaccines: Business travelers should follow national recommendations for routine vaccines such as influenza, tetanus, measles, mumps, rubella, polio, diphtheria, and zoster. Many of these travel vaccinations are incredibly important when traveling to other countries that have had breakdowns in specific vaccines. For example, many areas in Africa and Europe have had a rise in measles outbreaks since 2008, creating a worldwide measles resurgence. Also, numerous countries, including Germany, Nigeria, India, Iraq, and Afghanistan have experienced new outbreaks of wild poliovirus.
  • Vaccinate Against All Preventable Diseases: When traveling to a country, especially for a long period of time, it is wise to get vaccinated against all treatable diseases you could develop in the host country. These travel vaccinations should especially include the rabies and hepatitis B vaccines, as these could both be incredibly expensive and hard to obtain in many other countries.
