Check your vaccination status before travelling
When planning travel, it is a good idea to check what vaccinations are recommended for the destination in question. The vaccination requirement is determined on the basis of the destination, the nature of the trip and also its length, i.e. how long the person will be spending in the place in question. With regard to vaccinations, travellers are recommended to contact the medical centre about two months prior to travelling as in some cases it can take up to several weeks to achieve sufficient immunity.
