Transcript

  • 1. Travelling to India: Vaccinations, Medicines & Health Tips.
  • 2. Are you travelling to India? Here is some important information regarding vaccinations, malaria pills and general health information.
  • 3. Vaccinations If you’re not up to date on your vaccinations, schedule an appointment at your local travel clinic. These are some recommended vaccinations for most people headed to India:
  • 4. Hepatitis A & B (every traveller needs these)
  • 5. MMR (measles, mumps, rubella)
  • 6. Polio (yes, polio!)
  • 7. Tetanus & Diphtheria
  • 8. Typhoid
  • 9. Yellow fever — only if you’re coming from a yellow fever zone. Note: this list is not meant to be comprehensive for all people — just the basics are covered here. Check with a doctor.
  • 10. Malaria There is malaria in India, and lots of it. All regions throughout the country, below 2,000 metres, are considered to have malaria present (large cities such as Delhi, Agra and Jaipur are considered low risk). Anti-malarial pills, though, seem to be one of the most hotly contested items on any backpacker’s checklist. Virtually every travel forum is full of people looking for any excuse not to take these pills, usually due to tales of horrific side effects from fellow travellers.
  • 11. Map of India’s Malaria Zones
  • 12. Health & Wellness As with travel to any foreign land, packing a basic medical kit is sound practice. At minimum, include:  Antihistamine  Band-aids  Hand sanitizer  Diarrhea relief tablets (Imodium)  Antacid  Painkillers  Bug spray (30% DEET)  Cortisone cream  Antibacterial ointment (Polysporin)  Water purification tablets
  • 13. If you do get sick (vomiting and diarrhea), and it’s showing signs of being a serious infection, antibiotics are the treatment of choice.
