Please help...

I am going to NY, LA, Fiji, NZ, Oz, Bali, Thailand, Laos & Vietnam - do I need to spend £40 on a yellow fever jab? I can't seem to find a straight answer anywhere.

Cheers

there is no need for you to take the jab. Yellow fever only occurs in Africa and south-America. In Asia there is NO Yellow fever

That's great news. I have a yellow card from my GP for Typoid and Hep A is this sufficient or do you know if I need an actual certificate?

Thanks for your help

The yellow vaccination 'passport'must be sufficient. I had it also, but nobody at the border (or customs at airports) asked for it, so its no big deal obviously. Good luck with your travels!!!

Hi Helen!

Wouterrr is correct - you do not need the Yellow Fever vaccination for the countries you will be visiting. A Certificate of Vaccination will only be required if you visit S. America and/or Sub-Saharan Africa, then travel through SE. Asia immediately after - which your itinerary does not show you will be doing.

For more information:

Have a great trip!

Thanks for all you advice! You guys seem like yuo know what's what! Can you help me by telling me what clothes I should pack to start with? e.g how many bras? t-shirts, what trousers, zip up jacket etc...

I'll be in NY in August so I can always pick up cheap clothes there but a rough guide would be a great help.

I should bring as less clothes as possible (its all will weigh up your pack). In Asia you can buy very cheap clothes which is perfect for that tropical climate, you don't need to bother buying clothes in NY actualy (well only if you want to).

Have a GREAT trip!!

Hey Helen - how long will you be trafeling (ie: a week, month, year, etc.)? That will help decide how much clothing you will need to pack. I can say that both New York and LA will be hot in August. New York can be cooler in the evenings - but July and Augsut here is the States are known as the "Dog Days of Summer", which means it's hot , sultry weather.
