Hey… I went to a travel doctor a few months ago and asked about this. I ended up getting a typhoid/Hep A vaccine as I am going to Egypt. But as for europe, the travel doctor said there were no essential vaccines. But he reccommended a flu shot as you’ll be in airports/strange places with many people. So I got one of those. He also gave me tips to travel health.[br][br]I reckon it’s a good idea to see a travel doctor. Especially if you are travelling for a longish period of time.[br][br]Pharaoh’s Footsteps: Oct 18th, 2008.[br]Winter European Getaway: Nov 25th, 2008.

I had the Meningococcal vaccine (for type C only). My GP recommended it due to traveling in a large group. I was already up to date with my other vaccines due to the nature of my job. Tetanus shot would also be a good idea to have.

I know i had the rubella needle when I was at school. I think also the chicken pox, measles and mumps. That would mean i’d only have to have 5 of the others if i was to go lol

I had the MMR twice- as a baby and when I was 12 but the measles immunisation had worn off and so I had to have the injection for all three again. [br][br]I had chicken pox when I was 7. I think I had tetanus at 12- but I was overdue for another. Some of the other shots I may also have had as a child but cannot recall.[br][br]I had to get blood tests to prove what I had been immunised against- and it was surprising to learn that some things that were supposed to be permanent had worn off.[br][br]Odette[br][br]Mega European June 22nd
