  Infectious Diseases and General Travel Precautions

Infectious diseases are common in many countries and travellers may need additional immunization or medications when travelling to these countries. The risk of exposure to disease will depend on the travel location, the type of travel, the season, the duration of exposure and the recreational activities you do during your trip. Contaminated food and water are also common sources of infection. Insects can be another mode of transmission. Making sure you have adequate immunization, taking appropriate preventive measures and following recommended precautions can prevent many of these diseases.
