Hi, I would be really grateful if anyone could help - myself, my husband and four children are travelling to Goa on 16th December 2014 for two weeks. Please can anyone advise when I should be thinking of applying for visas? Also, have been to visit our GP practice nurse today to find out recommendations for vaccinations. Have had typhoid and diphtheria/ tetanus/ polio vaccines and are booked in for a course of hep a/ hep b vaccines. The nurse also recommended the rabies vaccines, but said I needed to consult a private clinic and also advised that malaria precautions were no longer necessary. Expected malaria precautions to be necessary, so am a little confused? Remember taking them when I visited Goa many moons ago! Any opinions re. the rabies vaccines and malaria tablets?? Thank you.
