What vaccinations do I need for Goa?
Goa is renowned for its beautiful beaches and thriving party scene. However, Goa does pose some risk of diseases to travellers.
Much like the rest of India, the recommendation is that you are up-to-date with your routine vaccinations, and have had a dose of the hepatitis A and typhoid vaccine in the last 3 years.
Let your doctor know if you have planned particular activities, such as sports, visiting locations where animals are present, or getting a tattoo or piercing. Your doctor will be able to let you know which vaccinations are recommended for you based on this information, as well as the season in which you are travelling and the duration of your stay.
