Abstract: Traveler'sTraveler’s vaccination today
Vaccination is an essential part of health information and advice of a traveler’s consultation. It is an individualized advice that takes into account the characteristics of the traveler and the travel destination and activities. The general practitioner or the yellow fever vaccination center are well positioned to guide the patient. The advice refers to the national consensus guidelines which are based upon WHO recommendations. Some vaccines are obligatory, others strongly recommended for medical reasons, others indicated due to exposition risks or duration of the stay. The following topics are covered: yellow fever, meningococcus, vaccines for Mekka pilgrims, poliomyelitis, tetanus-diphtheria and measles-mumps-rubella, cholera, hepatitis A and/or B, typhoid fever, rabies, Japanese encephalitis and tick-born encephalitis.
