Drop in vaccinations blamed on price conscious travellers


THE number of people being vaccinated in Malaga for foreign travel has fallen by 7 per cent this year.

Malaga’s International Vaccination believes the reason to be because people cannot afford to travel to exotic destinations which require vaccinations.


Since January this year, 3,000 people visited the centre to obtain vaccinations.

More than 1,800 were vaccinated at the centre and others were sent to health centres to receive 7,660 vaccinations mainly against Yellow Fever, Japanese Encephalitis, Tick-borne encephalitis and Meningococcal disease.

The centre report that since 2009, more people are travelling abroad to work, more immigrants are returning home and some people are travelling to new destinations thanks to work and study grants.
