Information

Information about DTP

Information about DTP (Diphtheria, Tetanus and Polio). Persons born after 1950 have almost all received vaccinations as a child. In general a booster-injection is sufficient. Older persons who have not been vaccinated, or where this is not known, should have the full series of three injections.

Information about Typhoid

Typhoid is a serious infectious disease that is transmitted through food. It is accompanied by high fever and without treatment the disease can be fatal. Although the vaccination does not offer 100% protection the disease is generally less severe after vaccination.

Information about Hepatitis A

Hepatitis A is a highly contagious disease which occurs as a childhood disease in tropical countries. Dutch nationals who were born after the war will probably not have experienced the disease. The Hepatitis A virus is transferred through food and is often found in seafood and raw vegetables. Adults can become very ill and take a long time to recover. Vaccination offers very good protection.

Information about Measles, Mumps and Rubella

Mumps, Measles and Rubella are rarely seen in the Netherlands any more. Elsewhere in the world these diseases are still common.

Information about Hepatitis B

Hepatitis B is one of the most serious infectious diseases in the world. It is caused by the Hepatitis B virus. Hepatitis B is transmitted through blood and sexual relations. Hepatitis B is very contagious. A vaccine can be given in a series of three injections. The blood can then be tested to show the level of anitbodies. If this is sufficient then protection is lifelong.

Information about Dengue

Dengue is a mosquito-borne viral disease accompanied by high fever, headache and muscle aches. A rash also often occurs. There is no treatment for Dengue and in general patients recover well with time. The mosquito that transmits dengue is active during the day. Taking appropriate measures to prevent mosquito bites is an effective way to protect against the disease.
