Vaccinations for Japan
Japan is a fascinating destination that offers a unique blend of traditional culture and modern advancements. As a pharmacist specializing in vaccinations for travellers, I would like to provide you with a guide to the recommended and advisory vaccinations for UK travellers visiting this captivating country.
When preparing for your trip to Japan, it is essential to prioritize your health and well-being. The current guidelines suggest that travellers from the UK should ensure they are up to date with routine vaccinations such as measles, mumps, and rubella (MMR), diphtheria, tetanus, and pertussis (DTP), and varicella (chickenpox). Additionally, it is advisable to consider vaccinations for Hepatitis A and B, typhoid, and Japanese encephalitis, depending on the duration and type of activities planned during your stay.
