Does anybody know a website that shows you what injections and health advise you need for each country you are traveling too?

Here are two that should help you with the information you need.

UK Dept. of Health

US Center for Disease Control

If you have a listing of the countries you are going to be visiting - please post them here so we can help with additional information. Also, if you would like, please send the listing to me in a PM. I will be very glad to help you figure out what you may or may not need.

dont do what i did.go to the doctors with a list of about 25 countries and then proceed to sit their with a stupid nurse as she looked everyone up on a website one by one and proceeded to print out 5 pages of information on each country.

Reece is correct. Our physician's nurse did the same with us - then stated we needed every injection listed. Do your research and go in as an informed patient. If you decide you do not really need a particular injection, be ready to hold your ground. Again, a listing of the countries will be helpful for us to give additional advice.

One question - when are you planning to depart on your trip? Some vaccinations are a series of injections so giving yourself adequate time is a good idea.

You really should not need to have injections for New Zealand

Quoting Wocca

You really should not need to have injections for New Zealand

Although india is included on the list, and i am sure you will need injections for that country!

My advise from having some myself. 1 listen is isa, she is very experienced, i did! secondly, take what the nurse in the doctors says with a pinch of salt, they try and dope you with everything because they dont know really what you need, if its on their special website they will try and dope you.
I mean rabies, yes it exists in south am, but 1 solution, dont touch dogs?! that would have cost me 120 english quid, rip off!
