Our travel advice helpline is intended only for students covered by the FSHS services planning to travel abroad. Travel-related advice is provided by a nurse supported by a doctor.
You should contact us preferably three months before your departure date to allow enough time to complete any series of vaccinations you may need.
If you only need basic vaccinations, contact your local FSHS unit. Basic vaccinations include those for tetanus and diphtheria (Tet-d), hepatitis and measles, mumps (parotitis), rubella (MMR or MPR) and tick-borne encephalitis vaccine.
