Good to know before the trip to Egypt

When you travel to Egypt, you should have protection against hepatitis A, tetanus / diphtheria (basic protection), and cholera / tourist diarrhea.

If you stay in Egypt for three weeks or more or if you have an increased risk behavior, you should also have protection against hepatitis B and typhoid.

Keep in mind that vaccination prescriptions are always tailored to your individual needs. At our drop-in clinics, we make it easy for you, in consultation with our specialized staff, to ensure that you receive full protection before your trip to Egypt. If you start your vaccinations at least one month before the trip, you do not have to forgo any protection due to lack of time. You can never get vaccinated too early.

Vaccination Egypt for children

Children should of course have the same good vaccination protection as adults, they are exposed to the same risk of infection during their stay in Egypt.

Visit one of our clinics

Detailed and personal advice can only be given at our clinics. General advice will be very comprehensive so that nothing is forgotten. Knowledge of local disease incidence must be put in relation to the traveler’s risk-taking, length and character of the trip, previous protection, individual possible chronic diseases, allergies, etc. Medical prescriptions may thus differ from case to case. If you want to know more or get vaccinated before the trip to Central Africa, you are welcome to visit one of our drop-in clinics. Feel free to bring information and records of previous vaccinations.
