3) Do I need vaccinations?

You'll need vaccinations to visit some of our destinations. Speak to your doctor at least two months before you're due to go away. Some treatments, for malaria for example, should begin well before you go. If you're booking within three weeks of your departure, speak to your doctor before you book.

For more information on vaccination requirements, visit the National Travel Health Network website or take a look at NHS Scotland's Fit For Travel site. Alternatively, call NHS Direct on 0845 46 47.

Check your destination's entry requirements to find out if you need to be vaccinated to travel there, or to travel without quarantine. You can view our entry requirements table, or see the FCDO website.

There is currently no risk of yellow fever in Jamaica, but there is a requirement for a yellow fever certificate in some circumstances. Travellers to Jamaica are advised to speak with their GP, Practice Nurse or a private travel vaccination clinic for advice on this.
