No injections are needed, but I would recommend that you have an up to date tetanus, I had a tiny piece of coral embedded in my big toe which could have got quite nasty, thankfully up to date tetanus so I did not worry about it.

There are no compulsory requirements.

However it is prudent when travelling overseas to ensure that the following are up to date: polio, typhoid, tetanus and Hep A. Your Practice Nurse or GP is best placed to give you the appropriate medical advice.
