Are you travelling to Brazil for the World Cup? NaTHNaC and Public Health England have published a fact sheet with lots of tips to help you stay healthy and safe during your trip: http://bit.ly/1geIzR6
Brazil is a large country and the health advice varies depending on where you are travelling and what you are doing. Check NaTHNaCs country information pages for advice on vaccines, malaria and other health risks.
Ideally seek advice from your GP, practice nurse or travel clinic four to six week before you go. Some clinics are very busy so call early to get an appointment. If you have less time, an appointment is still worthwhile, some vaccines and malaria tablets can be provided at short notice.
England’s first match, against Italy, is on 14 June 2014 in the Amazon city of Manaus. Malaria tablets, yellow fever and other vaccines are recommended for visitors to this area.
