Travel Tales of Argentina
Under normal circumstances, in our globalized world, more than a million people travel internationally every day. In many countries, vaccines to prevent diseases are common, and often mandatory. Without vaccines, epidemics of many diseases could return, resulting in more illnesses, deaths, and a lower quality of life. Getting vaccinated before traveling is necessary to ensure global public health and to help people stay healthy during and after their travels.
Since the pandemic that caused Covid-19, the importance of getting vaccinated before traveling has become much more prominent. But not for all trips it is necessary to get vaccinated. We are going to tell you more about the required vaccinations for travel below.
There are destinations that recommend certain vaccines and others that ask for them as a requirement. Mandatory vaccinations are those that require a specific certificate to enter a country. If you don’t have it, you can’t enter. The rest are recommended because the risk of the disease is important in the place where you are going to travel and its administration is recommended to avoid infection
Beyond the mandatory vaccines to enter certain destinations, the recommended vaccines must be applied every certain time. Sometimes several times in life and others that with applying them only once, they cover us from diseases forever.

The star destinations that people consult the most about the required vaccinations for travel are Thailand, Vietnam, Cambodia, India, Brazil and Africa. Generally speaking, the most commonly administered vaccines are hepatitis A, which is administered in almost all destinations, and other vaccines, such as typhoid fever.

It is recommended to make the appointment at least 2 months before departure, in this way it is ensured if you need to be vaccinated, arrive properly immunized.
It’s important to get vaccinated at least 4 to 6 weeks before you travel. This will give the vaccines time to start working, so you’re protected while you’re traveling. It will also usually make sure there’s enough time for you to get vaccines that require more than 1 dose.
Before embarking on a trip, it is advisable to have certain health considerations.
