Many travellers are not always protecting their health before travelling to endemic areas. You can stay healthy during travel by taking the right steps to protect yourself and your family before you go. Travellers are encouraged to see their doctor for travel health and vaccination advice at least 6-8 weeks prior to departure.

Here, you may find information on how you can protect yourself and your family from three important travel related illnesses, Hepatitis A, Hepatitis B and Meningococcal meningitis. Be aware that travel related disease incorporates a range of illnesses such as yellow fever, malaria, rabies, polio, typhoid, measles, mumps, rubella, Japanese encephalitis and other viral or bacterial infections. You can use the links provided to look up sources for up-to-date travel information from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the World Health Organization (WHO).

You may also ask for advice from the Travel Immunization Clinic which is a branch of the Malta National Immunisation Service and offers travel health information and vaccination services for people travelling abroad.
