Holiday vaccinations


#1

HI

We are thinking of going to Goa for Christmas and New Year but I am worried about the vaccinations that are required out there. I am on Azilect, 1 tablet a day. Has anyone been out there and had the jabs.

Look forward to your thoughts on this

Hi Dory,

Your GP will be able to advise you which vaccinations you may need. And we'd recommend talking to your GP, specialist or Parkinson’s nurse about how vaccinations may affect your medication.

You can also speak to one of our nurses on the Helpline for advice about this. Call 0808 800 0303 Monday-Friday: 9am-7pm, Saturday: 10am-2pm.

Best wishes,

Joanne

Thank you. I will check just to make sure but I think I'm erring on the side of going somewhere that doesn't need all the vaccinations as I not sure I want all that stuff in my body as well as the fact that it might affect my meds.
