    We're going to Egypt for our honeymoon and when we booked it they suggested we have yellow fever jab. Other than possibly malaria tablets, is there anything else we're likely to need vaccination wise and how far in advance will we need to have them done? The last time I went abroad was to visit my Dad when he lived in Tanzania, which was over 10 years ago!

    I'm not sure for Egypt, just wanted to say a friend of mine went to Tanzania for her elective placement for uni, a big groups went to Uganda, but honestly think my friend who went to Tanzania had the better experience for seeing things through a different light.

    I'm not sure for Egypt either, probably not much as lots of people go.

    We're going to Mexico and keep hearing mixed things on whether we need jabs or not :/

    As far as jabs are concerned I have no idea, maybe best to call your docs and ask. I hear Egypt is lovely though and you can get some great luxurious locations. I'm sure you will have an amazing time! Take lots of pics for us to see please!! X

    I didn't have yellow fever for Egypt, but it's worth asking because that jab is around £80 charge! I only had typhoid and Hepitits B for Egypt which I had to get re done last year for Mexico because they were out of date. Last time I went to Egypt was 2009 so maybe the jabs have changed!

    Hope you don't have to have yellow fever though, wouldn't be nice to have to pay £80 for the pleasure! xxx

    Advice for All Destinations
    The risks to health whilst travelling will vary between individuals and many issues need to be taken into account, e.g. activities abroad, length of stay and general health of the traveller. It is recommended that you consult with your General Practitioner or Practice Nurse 6-8 weeks in advance of travel. They will assess your particular health risks before recommending vaccines and /or antimalarial tablets. This is also a good opportunity to discuss important travel health issues including safe food and water, accidents, sun exposure and insect bites. Many of the problems experienced by travellers cannot be prevented by vaccinations and other preventive measures need to be taken.

    Measles occurs worldwide and is common in developing countries. The pre-travel consultation is a good opportunity to check that you are immune, either by previous immunisation or natural measles infection.

    Ensure you are fully insured for medical emergencies including repatriation. UK travellers visiting other European Union countries should also carry the European Health Insurance Card (EHIC) as it entitles travellers to reduced cost, sometimes free, medical treatment in most European countries. Online applications normally arrive within seven days. Applications may also be made by telephone on 0845 606 2030 or by post using the form which can be downloaded from the website.

    For Travel Safety Advice you should visit the UK Foreign and Commonwealth Office website.

    A worldwide list of clinics, run by members of the International Society of Travel Medicine is available on the ISTM website.

    Immunisations
    Confirm primary courses and boosters are up to date as recommended for life in Britain - including for example, vaccines required for occupational risk of exposure, lifestyle risks and underlying medical conditions.
    Courses or boosters usually advised: Hepatitis A; Typhoid.
    Other vaccines to consider: Hepatitis B; Rabies; Tetanus.
    Yellow fever vaccination certificate required for travellers over 9 months of age arriving from countries with risk of yellow fever transmission and for travellers having transited more than 12 hours through the airport of a country with risk of yellow fever transmission.
    Notes on the diseases mentioned above
    Hepatitis A: spread through consuming contaminated food and water or person to person through the faecal-oral route. Risk is higher where personal hygiene and sanitation are poor.
    Hepatitis B: spread through infected blood and blood products, contaminated needles and medical instruments and sexual intercourse. Risk is higher for those at occupational risk, long stays or frequent travel, children (exposed through cuts and scratches) and individuals who may need, or request, surgical procedures abroad.
    Rabies: spread through the saliva of an infected animal, usually through a bite, scratch or lick on broken skin. Particularly dogs and related species, but also bats. Risk is higher for those going to remote areas (who may not be able to promptly access appropriate treatment in the event of a bite), long stays, those at higher risk of contact with animals and bats, and children. Even when pre-exposure vaccine has been received, urgent medical advice should be sought after any animal or bat bite.
    Tetanus: spread through contamination of cuts, burns and wounds with tetanus spores. Spores are found in soil worldwide. A total of 5 doses of tetanus vaccine are recommended for life in the UK. Boosters are usually recommended in a country or situation where the correct treatment of an injury may not be readily available.
    Typhoid: spread mainly through consumption of contaminated food and drink. Risk is higher where access to adequate sanitation and safe water is limited.

    Malaria
    Malaria not normally present unless the illness was contracted abroad.
    Other Health Risks
    Altitude and Travel
    This country has either areas with high altitude (2400m or more) or/and areas with very high altitude (3658m or more). Travellers who may go into areas of high altitude should take care to avoid ill effects of being at altitude including Acute Mountain Sickness, a potentially life-threatening condition. For further information see Altitude and Travel.

    Schistosomiasis
    A parasitic infection (also known as bilharzia) that is transmitted to humans through contact with fresh water. The parasite enters humans through the skin and prevention is dependant on avoidance of swimming, bathing or paddling in fresh water lakes and streams. For further information see Schistosomiasis.
