Our recommendations

Consult with travel health nurses six to eight weeks before your departure to obtain the required vaccines.

This precaution is even more important if you plan to visit a tropical region or developing country. Certain vaccines require multiple doses, therefore requiring more than one visit to the clinic. That said, it’s better to leave the country having received the vaccines the night before rather than not at all.
