Special considerations for adults

  • Influenza  and/or pneumococcal vaccine is advised for those more likely to have complications such as those with chronic respiratory, heart, or renal disease; asthma; diabetes mellitus; after splenectomy (pneumococcal) or immunocompromise. Also for those over 65 years of age
  • Tetanus booster doses are not required for life in the UK following a full immunisation course i.e. a primary 3 dose course followed by 2 boosters, 5 in total. In the event of a high risk tetanus prone wound, human tetanus specific immunoglobulin should be given. Booster doses of tetanus may also be given at this time if the individual has an incomplete or unknown tetanus immunisation history.
    Travellers to areas where medical attention may not be accessible and whose last dose of tetanus was more than 10 years previously, a booster dose should be given prior to travelling, even if the individual has received 5 doses of vaccine previously. This is a precaution in case immunoglobulin is not available in the event of a tetanus prone wound.
  • Poliomyelitis after the 5 childhood doses boosters are advised 10 yearly for health care workers who may be exposed to infected patients and for those going to countries where poliomyelitis is still endemic.
  • Meningococcal type C vaccination is now recommended under the British Schedule up until the age of 24 years and a travel consultation may be an opportunity to consider this in relation to life in Britain. However it will NOT give any cover against the A and W135 strains prevalent in Africa when the quadrivalent polysaccharide vaccine is the type that is recommended.
