The answer

The immunisations that are recommended for travel to these countries are listed below:

  • Dubai: Diphtheria, Hepatitis A and Tetanus.
  • Singapore: Hepatitis B and Japanese Encephalitis are recommended only if you plan to stay in Singapore for more than one month.
  • Australia: Tetanus and Diphtheria (as before).
  • USA: no further specific immunisations needed.

It is always sensible to make an appointment at a travel clinic to ensure you are up to date with the correct immunisations.
