If you are traveling a long distance or across borders, a travel vaccination may be necessary, especially if you’re immune system is less resistant to infections. Vaccinations are provided to protect you from numerous diseases, these include yellow fever, typhoid, and hepatitis A.
In certain countries, travelers are required to show proof of vaccination before they enter. These include Saudi Arabia, which conduct these protocols during Hajj and Umrah pilgrimages. Other countries in Africa and South America do not accept incoming travelers from countries affected by yellow fever.
