Prophylaxis and necessary travel and tropical vaccinations in Munich
If you are traveling to exotic countries, targeted travel vaccinations are usually recommended. We offer the appropriate advice quite individually for your destination and the required vaccinations in our practice in Munich.
Tropical vaccinations in Munich protect you and others from diseases
In addition to the travel vaccinations we recommend, some countries also require mandatory vaccinations for travelers from high-risk regions, such as against yellow fever, meningococcal disease or polio. After all, not only do travelers expose themselves to increased health risks in some areas, they may also pose a risk of infection to others upon their return.
Recommended standard vaccinations for risk regions
The Permanent Vaccination Commission, which provides medical advice to the states on their public vaccination recommendations, recommends travel vaccinations against cholera, TBE, yellow fever, hepatitis A/B, influenza, meningococcal disease, polio, rabies, and typhoid fever when traveling to appropriate high-risk regions.
Special tropical vaccinations in Munich against febrile diseases
When traveling in the tropics and subtropics, additional travel vaccinations against various febrile diseases such as malaria, leishmaniasis, trypanosomiasis, typhoid fever, rickettsiosis, Q fever, dengue or chikungunya are required.
Timely advice for optimal vaccination protection
Of course, a long-distance traveler does not have to be vaccinated against everything at once, but part of good medical travel preparation is to get timely advice on the necessary tropical vaccinations in Munich or elsewhere, since some travel vaccinations only take effect after a while and there may be intolerances.
More distant destinations require better medical preparation
In recent years, the expansion of the travel market by low-cost airlines has opened up many exotic vacation destinations to a wide audience without a corresponding increase in awareness of the associated health risks. But the difference between Mallorca and the Dominican Republic is not just a few hours by plane; medically, the climate, hygiene and medical care at the tropical vacation destination often require much more extensive preparation.
Follow-up examinations should be understood as part of tropical immunization in Munich
This also applies to the often neglected follow-up examinations, which should exclude a delayed outbreak of the disease as well as a possible risk of infection for third parties. Therefore, let Dr. Frühwein und Partner advise you about tropical vaccinations in Munich if you want to discover exotic places with a safe feeling.
Not all travel vaccinations are reimbursed by the health insurance company
Since not all insurance companies reimburse travel vaccinations, we ask you to inquire with your health insurance company to find out how much the costs are covered. You can also get information on the following website:
