Vaccinations are required when travelling to certain countries, the number and type of immunisations vary from country to country.

Your GP should be able to give you advice and administer vaccinations or refer you to someone who can. Please contact your Doctor at least 6-8 weeks prior to travelling to discuss your requirements.
