Corporate Travel Vaccinations and Medications
Protect Your Employees When They Travel Abroad for Business
If you, or your employees, travel abroad for business purposes, you may require the need for travel vaccinations.
As an employer, it is part of your duty of care towards your employees to make them aware of the potential risk of diseases in certain countries and to give them the option to receive vaccinations or medication when necessary.
At Superdrug, we offer a broad range of travel vaccinations and medications so your workforce can enjoy a safe and healthy business trip.
Corporate Travel Vaccinations & Medications
Yellow Fever (administered in Health Clinics which are registered Yellow Fever Centres)
Yellow fever is a viral infection transmitted from a mosquito bite most commonly found in areas of parts of Africa, South America, Central America, and Trinidad & Tobago. A vaccination is recommended if you, or your employees, are travelling to any of these areas or a country that requires you to have a certificate proving you have been vaccinated against yellow fever. The vaccination must be administered at least 10 days before you travel.
Hep A Vaccine
Hep A, or hepatitis A, is a liver infection that is spread by the faeces of an infected person. It is uncommon in the UK, but if you, or your employees, travel to areas of the world where standards of sanitation and food hygiene is poor, such as parts of Africa, the Indian subcontinent, the Far East, the Middle East and Central and South America. If you are travelling to any of these areas for work, it is advisable to be vaccinated.
Hep B Vaccine
Hep B, or hepatitis B, is an infection of the liver caused by a virus that is spread through blood and bodily fluids. It is uncommon in the UK, but can be found widespread in areas such as the sub-Saharan Africa, east and southeast Asia, the Pacific Islands, parts of South America, southern parts of eastern and central Europe, the Middle East and the Indian subcontinent.
Vaccination against typhoid is strongly recommended if you, or your employees, are going to be working or staying in areas where there is poor sanitation and hygiene. Typhoid, which is a bacterial infection that can spread throughout the body, is more likely to occur in high-risk areas such as the Indian subcontinent, Africa, south and southeast Asia and South America.
Diphtheria, Tetanus and Polio (DTP)
Tetanus is a serious, but rare, condition caused by bacteria entering an open wound; it can survive for a long time outside of the body and is commonly found in soil and animal manure. Tetanus is found around the world, so it is important to be vaccinated before international travel. You, or your staff, may have received a tetanus vaccination before, but if it was more than 10 years ago it is advisable to receive a booster injection, which will also protect against diphtheria and polio.
Rabies is a profoundly serious infection that effects the brain and nerves and can be found around the world, particularly in Asia, Africa, and Central and South America. You, and your employees, should consider getting vaccinated against rabies if you are travelling to an area of the world where rabies is prevalent and plan to stay for more than a month or you will be taking part in activities that could put you at risk to exposure to animals.
Cholera can cause severe diarrhoea, and although it is not found in the UK there is a low level of risk of catching it when travelling abroad. You can catch it from drinking or eating food prepared in unclean water and by eating food that has been prepared by someone with the infection. It is mainly found in places without a clean water supply or modern sewage systems such as parts of Africa and Asia. It is advisable to be vaccinated against cholera if you, or your employees, are travelling to areas where the infection is common, or you’ll be visiting remote areas without access to medical care.
MMR (measles, mumps, and rubella)
The MMR vaccination is a combined vaccine that protects against 3 serious illnesses: measles, mumps, and rubella (also know as German measles). This vaccine is incredibly important as infection can lead to serious complications including meningitis, hearing loss and problems during pregnancy.
Japanese Encephalitis is a viral brain infection that is spread through mosquito bites and is most commonly round in rural areas of southeast Asia, the Pacific Islands, and the Far East. It is exceedingly rare in travellers, as it cannot be spread from person to person, but if you do become infected there is currently no cure. It is advisable to be vaccinated if you, or your staff, are planning a prolonged stay in a high-risk country, are travelling during their rainy season, or will be taking part in outdoor activities.
Tick-Borne Encephalitis is an infection caused by tick bites. The risk of catching it is extremely low, but it can be found in parts of Europe and Asia, as well as areas in the UK and you are more likely to be bitten by a tick if you are taking part in outdoor activities. If you, or your employees, are planning on travelling abroad and will be visiting woodland or grassy areas, the vaccination is recommended.
Men ACWY (Meningitis ACWY)
The Men ACWY vaccine is given in a single injection, into the upper arm, and protects against 4 strains of the meningococcal bacteria – A, C, W, and Y – which cause meningitis and blood poisoning. Meningococcal disease is rare, but serious; if infected, you will require urgent hospital treatment. If you are travelling to parts of the world with high rates of the disease, such as parts of Africa and Latin America, it is advisable to be vaccinated.
