Dr Brian Gilbert of Travel-bug Vaccination Clinic in Adelaide has kindly prepared the following information to help us keep our kids healthy while away from home.
While overseas keep children away from animals, especially dogs and monkeys (these carry rabies). Take care with power plugs, motorcycle exhaust pipes (Asia), wires, balconies, crossing roads, oceans and swimming pools. Ensure children are restrained when travelling in cars and never leave them unattended. Care with babysitters is recommended.
