Travel Vaccines - A US and European Perspective

by Sameer Joshi or 01-May-2018

As the cost of travel has decreased, more and more people are choosing to travel abroad for business and leisure. As a result, they can be exposed to pathogens non-endemic to their countries of origin. Ensuring that patients are vaccinated to reduce the risk of infection while travelling is an important tenet of practicing travel medicine.

Insurers in the US offer significantly variable coverage of travel vaccines, and this will often affect which vaccines a patient is willing to accept. In Europe, there is variation between countries over what travel vaccines are reimbursed through national healthcare providers. In most cases, travel vaccines will be provided through a mix of public and private care. Secondary research conducted by GlobalData indicated that although there are a greater annual number of US travelers, European travelers are more likely to visit regions with a high risk of infection.

Publisher's 'Travel Vaccines: A US and European Perspective' report covers the management of travel vaccinations in the US and Europe, focusing on travel habits of residents to high-risk areas, current and future travel vaccines, and research and development strategies.

Components of the report include:
