Taking your children on holiday for the first time will undoubtedly be one of the most rewarding experiences of both yours and their lives alike. It will provide you with timeless memories and an armory of photographs by which to remember it by. This being said, any holiday with children requires careful planning. Precautions must be taken in order for a holiday to be successful and this starts well before you leave, by ensuring that they are protected against any potential diseases.
Vaccinations for children are not always the same as those administered to adults. It is important that you are aware of which inoculations your children have had as part of the childhood vaccination programme as tetanus and polio inoculations are automatically provided as part of this. The main diseases to consider when travelling with children are typhoid, hepatitis A and Cholera although there may be other risks if travelling to more remote areas.
There are vaccinations for Hepatitis A and Typhoid which are specifically designed for children, creating active immunity. Children may find vaccinations uncomfortable and stressful, but they are very important considering their developing immune systems. Depending upon your destination, there may also be other factors to consider when travelling with children. It is very important to adequately protect children from the sun and also from dehydration.
