Stay Healthy Whilst Exploring Asia

As the world reopens and international travel resumes, many of us are eager to explore diverse and enchanting destinations across Asia. Indonesia, Thailand, Vietnam, and India are among the top 10 overseas travel destinations for Australian tourists. However, many of us forget about the health risks of travelling to these countries and don’t think to book in for pre-travel immunisations. At Sage Medical, we offer a comprehensive Travel Medicine Service (add hyperlink to Travel Medicine Service page) including travel immunisations. Before embarking on your next Asian adventure, it’s important to prioritise your health and well-being. At Sage Medical, we’re here to offer you an updated guide on travel health tailored specifically to Asia.

  1. **Updated Immunisation Recommendations**: Ensure you’re up to date with essential immunisations, such as Hepatitis A, Typhoid, and Japanese Encephalitis, based on your specific travel itinerary.
  2. **COVID-19 Precautions**: Stay informed about COVID-19 regulations and entry requirements in each country you plan to visit. You should consider arranging a booster immunisation before your trip. Be sure to follow local health guidelines and precautions to protect yourself and others.
  3. **Mosquito-Borne Disease Prevention**: Ask your doctor if anti-malarial medications are recommended for your specific destination. Protect yourself against diseases like dengue fever and malaria by using insect repellents, wearing appropriate clothing, and sleeping under mosquito nets, particularly in tropical regions.
  4. **Safe Eating and Drinking Practices**: Be cautious with food and water consumption and opt for bottled or boiled water when available. When it comes to food, choose hot and well-cooked foods from reputable sources.
  5. **Travel Health Insurance**: Ensure you have comprehensive travel health insurance that covers medical emergencies and repatriation, just in case.
  6. **Staying Updated on Travel Health Advisories**: Before and during your trip, stay updated on travel advisories (https://www.smartraveller.gov.au/), local health conditions, and any health-related alerts specific to the countries that you plan to visit. Keep an eye on emerging health concerns or disease outbreaks in those regions.
