Prevention is always better than cure. Imagine paying all that money to go abroad for a nice relaxing holiday only to arrive and get sick within a few days. Not only would you have to pay for your medical costs but you would lose your valuable time.

It is useful touse precautionary measures to help protect yourself against certain potential illnesses. However, many diseases which vaccines protect against are almost unavoidable. For instance Hepatitis A travels in water supplies and is very difficult to destroy with disinfectants. It is recommended that anyone travelling to an area that may put them at risk, should get vaccinated sooner rather than later (4-6 weeks before departure is preferable).
