Vaccinations For Egypt - Which Vaccines Do I Need?

Before you are ready to cruise the Nile or have your picture taken in front of the pyramids of Giza, you need to attend to your travel health. All travellers going to Egypt should consider getting vaccinated for hepatitis A and typhoid. Depending on the reason for your travel and the activities you have planned, you may need additional immunisations. It is best if you see a travel nurse six weeks before you are planning to leave, to allow enough time for all your vaccinations.
