People who are travelling outside the UK may need to be vaccinated against some diseases that are found in other parts of the world.
Travel vaccinations can protect you against becoming infected with a range of serious diseases, such as yellow fever, hepatitis, typhoid fever, polio, diphtheria and many others.
In the UK, the childhood vaccination programme protects against a number of diseases, such as tetanus, but it does not cover most of the infectious diseases that are found overseas.
How Emla can ease the pain during travel vaccinations
Some people put their health at risk by travelling to exotic destinations without the required travel vaccinations. Needle phobia needn’t be a reason to put your health at risk. Emla, a topical anaesthetic (numbing cream), is specifically designed to ease the pain of injections and could be the answer to travel vaccination worries for needle phobics. When used one hour before an injection Emla cream can help numb the pain of the needle. So before you go for your next travel vaccinations, try Emla cream.
* We recommended you speak to the nurse who will be giving you the travel vaccination before using Emla.
