As Emily and Geoff are off on their travels in 6 and 7 weeks time I thought I had better check out what Vaccinations they both need.
These are the ones you are advised to get…
Hepatitis A … a faecal/oral infection spread through contaminated food and water.
Tetanus…contracted through dirty cuts and scratches.
Typhoid…a systemic infection transmitted via faecal/oral route, most commonly through ingestion of contaminated food and water.
Yellow fever…spread through the bites of infected mosquitoes.
Geoff should also consider..
All of these are needed at least 4 weeks before travel, and as far as I know the only one you have to pay for is the yellow fever.
My nurse was very helpful and also gave me 4 pages of information to read.
I am booked to get mine 13th May 🙂
Yikes Sally you’ll be a human pin cushion!
Cherrypie… thankfully i dont mind injections 🙂
Too many needles!!!
