Which Vaccines Are Needed for Nepali Students Traveling Abroad?

Posted on : May 1, 2023 by Clinic One on Vaccination

A lot of students are leaving Nepal and traveling abroad every year for further studies. Many people also leave Nepal to travel to different countries for work or holidays.

However, with the recent pandemic that we went through, it is still important for us to get several vaccines before traveling out of the country.

While some countries have a mandatory rule that anyone coming into the country is vaccinated, it is still a good precaution to take in the countries that do not require it. 

Before traveling, you must get the necessary shots because they help shield you from infectious diseases that might be common in the places you’ll be going.

Disease risks vary by location of the world, and some ailments that are uncommon or absent in your own country might be widespread elsewhere.

You can lower your chance of getting sick, infecting others, and having to cut your trip short by acquiring the necessary vaccinations.

The way vaccines function is by conditioning your immune system to spot and combat particular viruses or germs.

The disease-causing material is introduced in weakened or inactive form through vaccinations, which stimulate your immune system to produce an immunological response that then confers immunity against further infections.

One of the best strategies to stop the spread of infectious illnesses and safeguard public health is through vaccinations.

The common vaccines some of the countries require are given below:

United States

  • Hepatitis A & B
  • Polio
  • Measles
  • TDap and TD
  • Chickenpox 
  • Meningococcal

Australia

  • Covid 19
  • Yellow Fever
  • Hepatitis B
  • Measles
  • Chickenpox
  • Polio
  • Influenza

United Kingdom

  • Hepatitis A & B
  • Meningitis
  • Polio
  • Measles
  • TDap and TD
  • Chickenpox
  • Pneumonia
  • Influenza

South America/ Africa

  • Yellow Fever
  • Polio
  • Measles
  • Chickenpox
  • TDap and TD

Therefore, in order to protect both yourself and the communities you will be visiting, it is strongly advised to get vaccinated before traveling overseas, especially to areas where there is a higher chance of contracting a disease.


Vaccinations Students Travelling Abroad

Regardless of your age, if you travel outside of Nepal, you must be vaccinated. While there are several types of vaccines you need to get, some of the vaccines are listed below:

Hepatitis B – Travelers to the majority of the world are advised to have these shots, especially if they want to eat or drink local cuisine after traveling abroad. 

Yellow Fever – You could be required to provide documentation of your yellow fever vaccine if you’re visiting regions of Africa or South America where there is a danger of yellow fever transmission.

Polio – Proof of the Polio vaccine is often required before you travel overseas. So Polio vaccination is a must and it is advised that you take a booster shot. 

Tetanus – Tetanus is a form of bacteria that can enter open wounds like burns or cuts and is present in soil and animal waste. You may be advised to get a booster shot before you travel because it is encouraged that you have this vaccine in 5 doses over the course of your lifetime.

TDap or TD – These vaccines also falls under the Tetanus vaccine and it helps protect us against Tetanus, Diphtheria, and pertussis. 

Chicken pox – Chicken pox vaccine is necessary before you travel to the United States. The disease is an airborne disease and can also transfer from direct contact with the infected person.

Meningococcal – Meningococcal vaccine is a vaccine that is used to prevent infection from Neisseria meningitis. 

It’s vital to keep in mind that some nations might only accept specific COVID-19 vaccines or need particular evidence, such as vaccination proof or COVID-19 test results that are negative.

Therefore, before leaving, it is crucial to confirm the most recent specifications and instructions with the embassy or consulate of the destination country as well as the airline you will be flying on.
