Found 22nd Oct 2007
I have booked a last minute holiday for myself and the gf to Egypt leaving in a weeks time. A couple of websites suggest that I need some vaccinations and that i shld have them a few weeks before depature. Does anyone know if these jabs are essential? And if they are, what do I do about the fact that I am leaving in a week.

Any help much appreciated!

Hope this is of some use!:thumbsup:

We've just come back and didn't have any jabs before we went with no problems, think you only need [SIZE=-1]malaria pils for the upper Nile delta region, unfortunatly i think you've left it too late for jabs so enjoy your holiday just take normal [/SIZE][SIZE=-1]precautions, drinking water,cuts infections etc.:thumbsup: [/SIZE]
