Vaccines/Immunizations are required in the treatment of infectious disease. Your travel may take you to a part of the world where serious outbreaks occur and your immune system requires a booster to protect you from exposure and possible infection. Vaccines are administered in various forms: injection, drops or oral capsules.
A vaccine is actually a weakened micro-organism of the infectious disease. Once administered your body will produce
anti-bodies to protect you if you were exposed to the full disease.
