Frequently Asked Questions

If you are planning to travel to regions outside of Western Europe, North America, Australia, and New Zealand, it is essential to consider vaccinations. The specific vaccines you will need depend on several factors, including:

  • Your travel destination and planned activities: Traveling to developing countries, especially rural areas, may expose you to more diseases, necessitating additional vaccines.
  • Your health condition: If you are pregnant, have a chronic illness, or possess a weakened immune system, you may require extra vaccines for added protection.
  • Your vaccination history: It is crucial to keep up-to-date with routine vaccinations. While certain diseases like measles are rare in Ireland, they are more prevalent in other countries.

Travel vaccines can be categorized as follows:

  • Required: These vaccines are a legal necessity for entering certain countries.
  • Routine: Standard vaccines that are commonly recommended for travelers.
  • Optional: These vaccines are for diseases present in the country you’re visiting, but the risk of transmission may be low.

It’s essential to remember that travel vaccines offer protection against many travel-related diseases but are not 100% foolproof. Always take general precautions to minimize your risk of exposure to diseases when traveling. Being vigilant about personal hygiene, consuming safe food and water, and avoiding contact with potentially infectious individuals are critical measures to take during your travels.

If you intend to travel to specific regions around the world, it is important to consider getting vaccinations before your departure. These vaccinations can provide protection against various serious diseases that are not typically prevalent in Ireland. While the childhood vaccination programme in Ireland offers protection against certain diseases, additional vaccinations may be necessary if you plan to visit certain parts of the world. We highly recommend ensuring that your childhood vaccinations are up to date and that you have completed the full course to enhance your overall protection.

Localized side effects are commonly observed and may include:

  • Tenderness at the injection site
  • Redness around the injection site
  • Swelling at the injection site

On the other hand, generalized side effects are infrequent and may encompass:

  • Fever (temperature above 38° Celsius)
  • Headache
  • Dizziness
  • Nausea
  • Fatigue
  • Malaise (general feeling of discomfort)

It’s important to note that anaphylaxis, a potentially serious adverse event, is a rare occurrence associated with all vaccinations, though thankfully exceedingly uncommon.

Occasionally, a hypersensitivity reaction of the skin can happen with certain vaccinations, particularly after receiving multiple doses. This may manifest as swelling and redness of the arm from the shoulder to the elbow. Such reactions typically occur within 2-8 hours after vaccination and often resolve without any treatment over time. Again, it is essential to emphasize that this type of reaction is also very rare.

Our service may not be suitable for individuals who are pregnant or breastfeeding. For these cases, a more comprehensive risk assessment is necessary, which cannot be adequately conducted through our written online consultation service.

We highly recommend that if you are pregnant or breastfeeding, you schedule an appointment with your local GP or a travel medicine clinic. This will ensure that you receive appropriate and personalized guidance regarding your specific health needs during this period.
