    Presumably you haven't had any vaccines since you were a child then? If you've any reason to think you didn't get any of the standard childhood vaccines, you can contact your GP to confirm (or mothers are great for that kind of thing too :)).

    TMB are great, I was just there last week. They will advise about what you need. It can vary from person to person depending on what areas you're going, what kind of activities you'll be doing (e.g. trekking/hiking) and how long you're travelling for.

    Are there any pros or cons about going to TMB over a GP?

    Not really. Your GP won't have vaccines in stock though so you'll probably have to make two visits.

    Hi all,

    I am travelling to Thailand in the new year (Bangkok and Krabi), just wondering if it is advised to get injections for them?

    Its something that slipped my mind in getting and just hoping im not too late in getting!

    Thanks in advance!

    We can't give out medical advice on boards. There are lots of online websites to see which countries need vaccines.

    Off to Thailand for 10 days. Am I right in saying I'm ok without vaccinations?

    Not unless you want to run the risk of getting very sick

    Hi all,


    I'm heading to South America for a few weeks next month. I'll be starting in Peru, then onto Bolivia and finishing in Brazil.



    Do you know if any vaccinations are required for this? I know yellow fever is recommended, but is it a requirement to travel?


    Thanks for any help. :)
