Other precautions: Aside from getting vaccinated, there any many things you can do to prevent getting sick: drinking only water from sealed bottles, brush your teeth with bottled water, maybe even keeping your mouth and eyes closed in the shower. Remember you can also pick up hepatitis from the ice in your drinks and fruit and veg washed in water. Some suggest keeping up a steady supply of alcohol – there must be some medicinal effects, right? 😉
Travel insurance: Travel medical insurance is a good idea! You’d be surprised where you can purchase – through CAA, work benefit plans, some credit cards (eg travel points), union, etc.
