Many occupations may present an infection risk and an employer will no doubt wish to minimise this by ensuring all necessary vaccinations have been offered to vulnerable employees. All travellers should undergo a careful risk assessment that takes into account their itinerary, duration of stay and planned activities.

Hepatitis B is a blood-borne virus which has infected over a quarter of the world’s population (over 2 billion people). Infection can be long-term and in some cases, cause liver cancer. At risk employees may include healthcare workers, police officers, laboratory staff, cleaning/maintenance staff and workers on seagoing vessels.
MMR is a safe and effective combined vaccine that protects against three separate illnesses – measles, mumps and rubella (German measles) – in a single injection. The full course of MMR vaccination requires two doses.
Infection is usually via the bite or scratch of a rabid animal, most frequently a dog. In some parts of the world, other animals such as bats, cats and monkeys are important sources of exposure. All individuals at continuous and frequent risk of exposure to rabies virus should be offered pre-exposure rabies immunisation
This potentionally fatal infection may be acquired if a wound is contaminated with soil or animal material. Occupations at risk include animal, agricultural and horticultural workers.
