The NHS recommends that all travellers have their routine vaccinations up to date and that they receive all the essential travel vaccinations for Vietnam.
Travellers visiting rural areas are at an increased risk of getting cholera if they are unvaccinated and aren’t taking care with what they are eating and drinking.
The DTaP – Diphtheria, Tetanus, and Polio – vaccine requires a booster every 10 years.
The Hepatitis A vaccine lasts 25 years.
Typhoid vaccine needs boosters after 3 years of administration.
Yellow fever vaccination provides lifetime protection.
Ideally, you should book an appointment at your local Village Pharmacy travel clinic 6 to 8 weeks before travelling so vaccinations have enough time to become fully effective.
