All travellers are at risk, especially if visiting for long periods or if living/working closely with the local population. Vaccination against these illnesses are provided as part of the UK childhood vaccination programme, and are normally given as a young child, however many people may have missed the first and/or second dose and are therefore potentially at risk of disease. In order to gain full protection two doses are required a minimum of one month apart.

*Vaccines work best if given time to become active. This vaccine can be given up to the day before travel and will provide some cover.
