Hi Roy. You also need a course of malaria tablets. Best to speak to your GP or pharmacist about which ones to have but you need to start them a week before you go.

some people have said their GPs have been recommending Japenese Encephalitis and possibly rabies jabs too.

I've never had these.

I'd say you'll need to contact your practice pretty soon after Christmas .

Take a look here - this is the public version of the website my practice nurse uses:
