There are no compulsory injections but there are some that are recommended. You should discuss you own needs with your GP or travel nurse. Further information can be found in the top questions on the right and also from the following:

I agree with boringFS, they are recommended and in my opinion, if they are recommended then you should have then. Better safe than sorry

I should have added that it is possible to negate insurance cover if eg you were taken ill with anything related to something that could have been seen as preventable or all due care taken, as in vaccinations!

My son and I had them before we went! I think you should just to be on the safe side, also we were not charged for them.

agree with all the post ,my sisiter in law is a travel nurse and always advises to have injections its better to be be safe than sorry, particulary for elderly and young children but check with gp and yes insurance may not pay out if you have not took nessasary precuations.

and they are free of charge.
