The World Health Organisation suggests that anyone visiting certain countries should be vaccinated against a number of diseases.
Such vaccinations include but may not be limited to: Hepatitis A, Hepatitis B, polio, diphteria, tetatus and malaria.
While such requirements differ from country to country - Reaching Cultures makes the necessary arrangements for our volunteers so such expenses would be waived off, provided that such vaccines are available for the Immunisation Clinic.
Each volunteers starts vaccination process around 3 months prior to the travel date.
Our doctors recommend that vaccinations are up-to-date prior to travel, but it is a volunteer's final decision whether they wish to be vaccinated or not.
