Please also check with your travel agent what would be required if you make a late booking as some vaccines need to be given at least 10 days prior to commencement of your holiday.
Please note that the NHS does not provide all vaccines and some attract fees and can take 4 6 weeks to complete the course. Please ask at reception for the up-to-date fees.
