Health and travel advice


It’s important to travel well-prepared. For many countries (even within Europe) it’s recommended to vaccinate against certain (tropical) diseases. 


Your travel destination, travel duration, activities and personal health situation determine which vaccinations you possibly need. The GGD can inform you on possible vaccinations and they can also give advice on other health related topics.
