Select REVIV Flagship locations (REVIV+) are now offering vaccinations so that you can live life and explore your world with confidence. Through our network of over 90 clinics and 40 countries, we offer you security and convenience without having to visit a doctor’s office or utilizing health service systems. Vaccinations are very safe and regulated and can protect you and safeguard others from transmissible disease.
Recent world events have disrupted modern life and reinforced the importance of health and safety. Disease prevention can be categorized into universal precautions to prevent transmission, herd immunity to limit disease spread within a population, and individual immunity to fight off infection. Herd immunity happens when a sizeable population is immune to a disease limiting its spread; however, novel illnesses and vaccination lapses can lead to lower group immunity.
The purpose of vaccinations is to generate biological memory so that the body can better manage future re-exposure and minimize sickness. Adequate nutrition and hydration are crucial to a robust immune system. In the face of current events, vaccinations are now more important than ever to help restore socio-economic normalcy.
You should arrange to see a REVIV travel nurse at least six to eight weeks before you are planning to leave the country, as some vaccinations require more than one injection, over the course of several weeks. Your REVIV travel nurse can advise you on which vaccines you need. Travelling without getting vaccinated properly, leaves you potentially exposed to life-threatening infectious diseases.
“Vaccination saves lives and has been one of the most important medical advances to have occurred. Vaccination offers a very safe and effective preventive strategy against many infectious diseases, including those we could face when travelling, whether it is to the supermarket or the far corners of the world. REVIV offer a gold standard approach to vaccination, based on the latest studies around optimal vaccination schedules to protect your health. Vaccination is becoming increasingly more important in the 21st Century and should form part of your preventive health plan”.
