Health screening and vaccinations are more important than you think.
Early detection saves lives. That is why regular health screenings are vital to your wellbeing. Health screenings comprise different tests (eg. blood tests, urine and stool tests, radiological investigations, etc) that can suss out health issues and diseases early. Just because you look and feel well doesn’t mean that you are in perfect health. So don’t procrastinate – get your annual health assessment done!
What about vaccinations? Are they really necessary for us? Well, there is timeless wisdom in the old adage, “prevention is better than cure”. Vaccinations prevent the spread of contagious (and sometimes even deadly) diseases.
While vaccinations are important for the vulnerable (eg. infants, children, elderly, etc), an average healthy adult should be vaccinated too. If you are travelling to another country especially in regions that are at risk of certain diseases (eg. rubella, malaria, etc), it is prudent to get vaccinated. Even at home in Singapore, we have flu seasons (typically in April and July) and the flu can be quite potent. Unlike a common cold, the flu virus can “knock you out” for days and even weeks. Therefore, it may be wise to get a flu vaccination so that you can prevent contracting the virus, and minimize its spread to your social circles as well.
