Vaccinations For Vietnam - Which Vaccinations Do I Need?


Vietnam’s national parks and world heritage sites are attracting an increasing number of international tourists. With its diverse landscape and vibrant local culture, Vietnam is a great country to travel and explore.

Before you can embark on your Vietnam adventure, you need to check whether you need any vaccinations. If you have not already been vaccinated, you will need immunisations for hepatitis A, tetanus and typhoid. In some areas, it is also important to take malaria tablets. Our travel nurses can advise you on which vaccines you need.
