Q Fever is a disease that can be spread to humans mainly from cattle, sheep and goats. The germ is spread in the urine, faeces and milk, but birth fluids, the foetus and the placenta are the most dangerous sources. When infected fluids dry out, the germ can remain alive in the dust for years. Q fevr vacination is recommended for those at risk of infection: this includes abbatoir workers, farmers, stockyard workers, shearers, animal transporters, veterinarians.
our practice nurses or Gps can assist with your travel plans – the early you ask the better as some vaccination schedules can take 6 months to complete.
Do not forget to consider you needs for travel insurance – our senior citizens and those with pre-existing conditions may need to shop around for a good policy – do not rely on ” free” Insurance schemes with creidt card bookings – read the fine print.
