International Vaccination Coverage


A specialist physician in Travel Medicine and International Vaccination will perform a preliminary examination of the traveller's general condition and the possible health risks at the destination.

The consultation will be performed by a single specialist and will last an estimated 30 minutes. The pre-travel medical examination includes:

  • Evaluation of the traveller's physical and psychological condition as well as their vaccination history.
  • Analysis of the real health risks related to the destination as well as the type and duration of the journey.
  • Good behavioural practices at the destination, self-management of medical conditions and finding local health care.
  • Malaria: preventive treatments for destinations with a prevalence of this illness (prophylaxis).
  • Evaluation of other water, food and vector-borne diseases (the latter relate to mosquitoes and other animals).



Once the main aspects relating to the traveller's health have been evaluated, the specialist will produce a detailed health prevention plan to deal with the particular characteristics of the journey:

  • Detailed itinerary.
  • Duration of the journey.
  • Reason for the journey and type of journey.
  • Time of year of the journey.
  • Activities planned at the destination.



Based on the specifications of the journey, the physician will prescribe the compulsory and recommended vaccines for each traveller.

The ASISA Group Travel Medicine Service's specialist medical team follows the guidelines established by the World Health Organisation, the Ministry of Health and other leading international institutions in this field.

According to these organisations, there are two types of vaccines for travellers to international destinations and recommendations for the prevention of other illnesses:

  • Compulsory vaccines.
    • Vaccines required by the destination country in order to enter it or a specific part of it.
    • Vaccines required by countries of origin for travellers who have visited or who have stayed for a certain period of time in risk zones.
  • Recommended vaccines.
    Vaccines recommended by health care institutions based on the traveller's condition or the specific situation of the destination zone.
  • Prevention of malaria and other recommendations.
    Diseases such as malaria do not have a specific vaccine, but there are different preventive treatment options which you need to know about since they vary depending on the geographic region you are visiting. For other diseases such as dengue fever and chikungunya fever where there is no prophylactic treatment, it is essential you know about their spread and the measures you can take to prevent them.

Vaccines will be administered in accordance with the Hospital or Medical Centre's health care protocols and their effect on the patient will be monitored.



Besides the vaccines indicated for each destination, the specialist will review the patient's vaccination history to detect possible needs or updates for diseases against which the traveller should already have been immunised, such as tetanus or diphtheria.



The post-travel consultation is offered to every traveller who wishes to be seen by a specialist after their return from their journey. This consultation is especially necessary for those travellers who:

  1. Are diagnosed with a chronic illness.
  2. Suffer from any type of immunodeficiency disorder.
  3. Develop any type of symptom within the 3 months after their return from their journey.
