Vaccines are an important public health measure and may be the prompt for travellers to attend for pre-travel health advice. Nurses involved in the provision of travel health advice require a sound knowledge of available vaccines together with the diseases they prevent and other risk management strategies. Travel vaccines should always be administered following a travel health consultation and risk assessment, taking into account the informed choice of the traveller. This paper discusses vaccine preventable disease in the context of travel health, and the appropriate use of routine, recommended and required pre-travel vaccines, which can be considered following individual risk assessment.
