If you and your family are moving overseas or are going to spend a considerable amount of time overseas, one of the things you are likely to do is to think of getting vaccinations up to date before you leave. There are many parts of the world where vaccinations are more important than others. It’s only common sense to visit your doctor well before you travel to find out if you need any vaccinations for the place you intend visiting.
If you are a visitor to Australia from Germany or you are a recent migrant, you may have had several vaccinations previously in Germany. Your children may also have had vaccinations which were considered important in Germany or were part of the German health system or you have made it an important aspect of your family’s health to make sure you have up to date vaccinations.
