So I'm planning on going out to Egypt in mid August to see my brother but I was wondering whether I need to immunise my almost 7 month old baby? I'm planning on going for just over a week and I just wanted some advice on if it is a necessity??
Thanks.

Hep A the main vaccine needed isn't licensed for babies under age 1 and typhoid isn't licensed till age 2.
This doesn't need no risk
Ensure they are up to date for the uk
Practice scrupulous hygiene, take care with water. Boil it. Peel al, fruit, avoid ice etc.
Biggest issue will be heat and sun.
