It annoyed me in our case as the hospital I was on placement at did not require any vaccination records (I am in allied health working with our patients) so it was a uni requirement.

For overseas travel I would definitely look at the incidence of the diseases in the countries being travelled to, and then make a decision based on that. I'm a selective vaxxer.
Been reading about herd immunity a little, there are those who feel it is a myth. Thoughts?

I wouldnt be taking my children...or me for that matter to any 3 world country until they are much much older...if at all.
The only places i would consider would be western/developed countries. Asia, India, Indonesia just dont appeal to me.
I i was to travel it would be to Canada, Europe, New Zealand or America...not that its going to happen while our kids are young.
We prefer to travel around our own state/country.
If we HAD to travel to 3rd world countries...though i cant see how...i would consider it, though my children wouldnt be coming!!
DH and i traveled to Italy for our honeymoon and we didnt get any vaxs.
As for the whole workplace thing...when my children are old enough to decide what job they want, they are old enough to make an informed decision about vaccinations

Of course, if people don't have their records we send them to have their immunity checked for most things by blood test (free).
In regards to Hep B, an immunity check should be performed anyway, particularly on those vaxxed in adulthood, as there is a proportion of people who don't take up immunity after the primary course and need further vaxs.

I've taken overseas trips twice and always consult with the travel clinic. I stay up to date on everything (especially Hep A & B and Td) and my daughter has had all of her jabs including HPV. On my last trip, I received a Polio booster and a typhoid vac. Better safe than sorry.
