Me and my boyfriend are going to Sharm El Sheikh in November and have been looking into vaccinations - I have already started mine by having two Twinrix (Hep A & B) vaccinations and I will need a booster in six months. I also require the Typhoid vaccination one month before I go.
Now, this is where I am confused - my boyfriend went to his GP last week and was given completely different information. He does not require the Hep A & B vaccination until one month before we go and doesn't require Typhoid at all. He has never been abroad so has not had any of these vaccinations before so there is no reason why he doesn't require them. I queried this with my nurse this morning and was told that different surgeries do different things - that doesn't really make much sense to me though as I am having a lot more vaccinations than my boyfriend for the same holiday / country!
So, if anyone here has been to Egypt and had vaccinations before travelling I would be really grateful if they could tell me what they had! I don't want to subject myself to vaccinations more than I have to (I hate needles) and I don't want my boyfriend to travel without the proper vaccinations!
