If you are planning a trip abroad visit your doctor at least eight weeks before you are due to travel as some shots need to be given well in advance.

Whether or not you will need to have shots depends on the individual country you will be traveling to, what existing medical conditions you have and what medication you are already taking.

A doctor, nurse practitioner, or travel clinic can advise whether vaccinations are required and what other healthcare measures are needed.

If you have not previously been immunized against diphtheria, polio or tetanus or are due for a booster, this is an ideal opportunity to have the vaccinations.

If you are pregnant, you should not have any unnecessary vaccinations so consult your doctor.
