When we travel, there is a lot of planning involved: booking the flight, finding a hotel or a house, planning the itinerary, packing bags... All these activities are aimed at guaranteeing the best possible experience, whether it is a beach holiday or a trip to explore Peru. It is important not to forget to pay the same attention to our health: careful prevention before departure is the best way to avoid unpleasant surprises during the holiday.

Prevention for travellers
Vaccination is undoubtedly our first ally in prevention, the first line of defense against diseases that in some cases can have severe complications. Whether it is to fulfil the vaccination obligations of your destination, or to protect your health while travelling, you will find what you are looking for in our Ambimed Points.

Vaccination is based on the exposure of an infectious agent to our immune system. Administered orally or through an injection (parenteral route), a vaccine contains the treated versions of the disease-causing bacterium or virus, or of some of its proteins or the toxins it produces (e.g. the tetanus vaccine); the treatment makes them harmless.
In this way, the immune system can be “trained” to mount a defence against infection, developing an immunological memory in a safe context. This elicits a rapid and precise response when the infectious agents are encountered again, neutralising the threat before the disease develops.
