Getting vaccinated for travel

Getting vaccinated: why, against what illness and how to obtain a refund?

Do you have the travel bug? Or are you visiting Thailand or Senegal for the first time? No matter how often you travel or where you are going: you need to protect yourself from certain viruses or illnesses if you travel to other latitudes.

Certain vaccinations are expressly required according to your country or region of destination. Yellow fever vaccine, for example, is mandatory in Latin America and sub-Saharan Africa. In other cases, vaccinations are recommended, such as hepatitis A in Cuba.
