Health Precautions

Goa is essentially a healthy place to live in, with bright sunshine and sea breezes. It would be a good idea though to guard against any serious diseases with a proper set of vaccinations. Since some vaccinations require more than one injection and some others cannot be injected with others, it is advisable to plan your vaccinations in consultation with your doctor well in advance of your trip. These can be then recorded on an International Health Certificate which is to be carried along with you. Entry into India requires yellow fever vaccinations, especially when coming from an infected area.

Other suggested vaccinations include the following:

  • Hepatitis A

  • Diphtheria & Tetanus

  • Meningococcal Meningitis

  • Typhoid

  • Hepatitis B

  • Polio

  • Rabies

  • Japanese B Encephalitis

  • Tuberculosis

  • Malaria

Also make sure that you have adequate health insurance before you embark on your trip.
