Whether you are going on holiday, backpacking or taking a business trip, if you visit some countries, it is advisable to find out what diseases can be picked up there are and then get the appropriate vaccinations. Travel vaccinations can give you protection against potentially life threatening infectious diseases, which can be caught by drinking contaminated water, by being close to an infected person when they sneeze or cough, or by being bitten by an insect.
Some countries will not allow visitors to enter if they have not had the appropriate vaccinations, such as malaria, typhoid or yellow fever. Yellow fever is found is some areas of South America and Africa, and is transmitted by mosquitoes, and can lead to organ failure and death if it is not treated, but if you get a vaccination against it, it's completely preventable.
