Medication

Although not compulsory for entry from the EU, certain vaccinations, including Hepatitis A, Typhoid, Tetanus and Yellow Fever are usually advised.

Other inoculations and anti-malarial tablets may also be recommended for high risk travellers.

Please ensure you consult your GP or health clinic prior to travel, who will advise on recommended inoculations. Children and pregnant women may require special vaccination procedures.

We advise that you take medicines to treat dehydration, stomach upsets, insect bites and cuts, along with mosquito repellent and high factor sun creams.

Up to date advice can also be found from the World Health Organisation at www.who.int/ith and the Department of Health leaflet (Ref T7.1) 'Health Advice to Travellers' is available from your GP, travel agent or can be downloaded at www.dh.gov.uk
