Health facilities, hygiene & disease risks vary worldwide, you should seek professional health advice about your specific needs as early as possible.
If you do require any vaccinations it is advised to leave around 4 to 6 weeks before you travel to do this, as some vaccines & antimalarial tablets need time to take full effect.
For all up-to-date information on vaccine recommendations & requirements, simply go onto the The Travel Health Pro Website: The National Travel Health Network & Centre & select your travel destination, then click on: Vaccine Recommendations.
You can also visit: The MASTA website (Medical Advisory service for travellers abroad) to check which vaccines or antimalarial tablets are recommend.
Many UK GP surgeries also offer a travel clinic where you can book any vaccinations & ask your doctor whether any other medical treatment is required before you go.
Please Note: There may be a fee for any vaccinations you may require.
