Here are some kids travel health tips for you to have peace of mind when travelling with kids. Be prepared and you will not have to worry should some health scares come along during your vacation.
Here are our travel health tips for a happy healthy holiday:
• Make sure the vaccinations are up to date. Vaccinations are a must when travelling abroad and I would always recommend taking along the vaccination booklet with your travel medical kit. Polio, Tuberculosis, Diphtheria are standard vaccinations all around the world now and the inoculations against MMR (Measles, Mumps, Rubella) are recommended as well, as these childhood diseases are still occurring in many countries around the world. Inoculations for Hepatitis A and B are as well advised when travelling to several hot countries and especially in developing countries.
• Make an appointment at a travel clinic or health practitioner before your trips and get some more information about any special condition of your child.
• Research and print out list of doctors and hospitals in the region you are visiting. Several big insurance companies compile a list of recommended doctors, try contact your insurance broker
• Get private medical travel insurance. Never underestimate the costs you could occur if your child is involved in an accident or gets sick and needs medical attention or even hospitalization. Make sure you have all relevant info about your child’s special condition with you when travelling.
• Take a Travel Health Kit along with Essential medication for Kids. Whenever you travel with kids, you will need some specific mediation and self-help remedies when trouble hits.
We hope our Kids Travel Health Tips will help you to enjoy a great relaxed and healthy holiday:-).
