    I don’t think you’ll need any for that tour. You might want Hep A and B for general health reasons both on and off tour.

    I recently went to my GP and she recommended a booster shot (for diptheria,tetanus etc) and a Hep B shot however she said since its europe the countries arent exactly third world so should be ok without them as they cant be pricey.
