The DTP vaccine protects against Diphtheria, Tetanus, & Polio, & is usually given to teenagers as a booster shot to strengthen their childhood vaccinations against these diseases.

It is a good idea to have the DTP vaccination if you are planning to travel widely, or to areas where any of these diseases is common, as they affect locations across several continents. You may have had this vaccination as a child, but it is important to ensure that you are up to date with your boosters, as the shots lose their effects after ten years. Always keep up-to-date with disease information when you are traveling, as areas of high risk can change over time.
