Prevention is better than treatment
Vaccinations are not exclusively something we should get as children. They should also be an essential part of an adult’s life, because the immunity provided by the vaccinations we received during childhood wanes as we age. Additionally, this reduction in immunity can have an effect on the risk posed by various diseases, such as pneumococcal disease, influenza, diphtheria, whooping cough, tetanus and hepatitis B, a disease capable of leading to liver cancer.
The Royal College of Physicians of Thailand recommends that adults receive regular vaccinations to strengthen their body’s immune system. The Adult Vaccination Center at Samitivej recognizes the importance of providing vaccinations to prevent diseases. The center offers vaccination services to Thai nationals, foreigners residing in Thailand and to Thai and foreign tourists who are planning to travel overseas.
