Hi Everyone,

I'm going traveling in march to Australia with a mate and I was just wondering if any of your have had vaccinations? I'm also traveling around Thailand, Cambodia,Vietnam and Laos at some point also once again has anyone had any vaccinations for these?

Would really appreciate a reply as I am rather unsure of what I need!

Thanks

Elliot

There are travel clinics all over the UK: http://www.traveldoctor.co.uk

Otherwise you can discuss it with your family doctor.

At a minimum you should have all your basic immunizations up to date ie; diphteria/tetanus/polio, measles, mumps, etc. Plus Hepatitis A & B.

For SE Asia you'll want to consider typhoid and rabies.

All of the ones I've mentioned except for rabies are covered by the NHS.

None of these are required by law to travel, so it's up to you to decide if it's worth it. Personally, I figure if you can prevent an illness while you're on the road, there's no reason not to!
