Abstract

The increasing number of persons travelling to tropical and subtropical countries brings about a higher risk of infection with tropical diseases and of importation into non endemic areas. The following article deals with compulsory and recommended immunizations against tetanus, poliomyelitis, typhoid fever, hepatitis A, yellow fever, cholera, epidemic meningitis, hepatitis B, rabies and tuberculosis. Special problems such as vaccination schedules and vaccination in children are also discussed in detail.
