health – Vaccination for Nepal

How do we determine whether or not it’s important? Obviously if you know you’re going to get sick, getting it is essential, but with something that’s not guaranteed, just highly likely, you can’t put a figure on ‘really important’ or not.

However, we can listen to experts and see what they say.

Nobody likes getting injections, but given all these international groups for travellers and disease control ALL recommend getting them, it’d be considered foolish by many to risk it, even if you’re there for just a few days.

However, if it’s the injections that are really worrying you, what you could consider is that Lonely Planet mentions there is now a combined hepatitis A-typhoid vaccine, AND that you can take typhoid medicine as oral caplets, instead of the injection.
