(Mynewsdesk) Munich, June 2018 – Diging with the children in the sand, feeding goats on alpine meadows or pedal boating on the lake – for many families summer holidays are the highlight of the year. In order to have a good time together and to take holiday photos and collected shells as the only present of the trip, it is important to think about the health care of the entire family in good time before you travel. Therefore, a comprehensive travel preparation includes the review of the vaccination certificate and the first-aid kit. Even when traveling to popular holiday destinations such as Spain, Greece, Austria, France and Italy, tourists can become infected with travel sicknesses. “The vaccination recommendations for Germany should be the basis on which travel medical advice is based. For example, pneumococci, influenza, measles, tetanus, whooping cough and polio also pose a risk when traveling “, says the expert Prof. Dr. Jelinek from the CRM Center for Travel Medicine.” In addition, there are country-specific vaccination recommendations or regulations, such as yellow fever and rabies , Tick-borne encephalitis (TBE) or meningococcal. ” Hepatitis A viruses are found on trips to Mediterranean countries and Eastern Europe. The transmission is fecal-oral, by a contact or smear infection, both in close human contact as well as contaminated drinking water or food. After six months at the latest, the feeling of illness is over – there are no chronic events. However, the disease can also be fatal. For a quick protection, a one-time hepatitis A vaccine is a few days before the trip begins. Long-term protection requires a second injection every six to twelve months.1 Hepatitis B is one of the most common infectious diseases worldwide and is transmitted by blood in contrast to hepatitis A. The course of the disease is variable and age-dependent. Hepatitis B is transmitted via minimal amounts of blood, saliva or other bodily fluids. Caution should therefore be exercised especially for minor medical interventions or operations in risk areas. In the case of sexual contacts, should not be waived on a condom. In Germany vaccination has been recommended since 1996 for all infants, children and adolescents by the Standing Vaccination Commission (STIKO). For a successful primary vaccination against hepatitis B three vaccinations are required. It is vaccinated twice at a four-week interval before the planned trip and a third time approximately six months after the first vaccination. Rabies, too, is a viral disease that is transmitted from animals to humans – usually through the bite of an infected animal. The main transmitters include dogs, cats, monkeys and bats. When traveling to Croatia, Spain, Austria and France, there may be a risk of infection. Since the possibility of infection is also present when the saliva of the animal gets into an open wound, it is not recommended to pet animals in risk areas or to feed. Rabies is a progressive viral infection of the central nervous system that almost always ends in death. All the more important is an active vaccination. It consists of three injections on days zero, seven and twenty-one or twenty-eight and is completed within three or four weeks. Also widespread are TBE viruses (viruses of the early summer Meningoenzephaltis), which were detected among others in ticks in Austria, Italy, France, Sweden and Germany. Between seven and fourteen days usually pass from the tick bite to the onset of TBE disease. The signs of the first phase, such as headache, body aches, fatigue, and mild fever, can be mistaken for flu. In a possible second phase, the virus attacks the central nervous system. Violent headaches, neck stiffness, dizziness and nausea, and photophobia may occur. For children, there is a vaccine that is approved from the age of the first year of life. Quick decision travelers can build up a vaccine protection within a few weeks. In a detailed discussion with the family doctor can be decided by a careful benefit-risk balance individually, which prophylaxis for the destination and the respective needs are useful. “A good time for a consultation is six weeks before the planned trip, ideally earlier, so that vaccines can fully develop their protection,” concludes Prof. Dr. Jelinek.
