Travelling to Dominican Republic from the uk and had the recommended vaccinations for Mexico last year which are exactly the same. But didn’t have any boosters done! How long do the vaccines last for each of these illnesses without a booster ?

    The Hepatitis A vaccine protects you for 6 to 8 weeks. However, if you have a booster within 12 to 18 months, you are protected for the next 20 years. The typhoid vaccine lasts for 5 years, before you need a booster. The tetanus vaccine lasts for 10 years, before you need a booster. .

    I understand from my own vaccination record book that all three are good for several years, so you shouldn't need any of them again (provided you got all recommended hep a shots last time).

    If in any doubt, simply phone your doctor's surgery and ask for advice from the nurse. She will know if you need any boosters and can male an appointment if you do.

    typhoid and tetanus is good for 10 years. For hepatitis you need to get a gamma globulin shot every six months.
