As outlined in the link I gave above:

Travellers should be up to date with routine vaccination courses and boosters as recommended in the UK. These vaccinations include for example measles-mumps-rubella (MMR) vaccine and diphtheria-tetanus-polio vaccine.

Hi bronia I saw on an earlier post that you put on that there was no typhoid in Mauritius so I take it that means no need for a typhoid vaccination?

6. Re: Vaccinations

Typhoid is a bacterial infection transmitted through contaminated food and water. Previous typhoid illness may only partially protect against re-infection.

Travellers who will have access to safe food and water are likely to be at low risk. Those at increased risk include travellers visiting friends and relatives, frequent or long-stay travellers to areas where sanitation and food hygiene are likely to be poor, and laboratory personnel who may handle the bacteria for their work.

Typhoid in Mauritius

Typhoid fever is known or presumed to occur in this country.

Prevention

All travellers should take care with personal, food and water hygiene.

Typhoid vaccination

Vaccination could be considered for those whose activities put them at increased risk (see above).

Thanks bronia, thats very helpful.

I’ve seen you mention Peaceful sleep on here is it possible to buy it at the airport when we arrive or would we need to get it from a supermarket?

No you cant unfortunately Fisher Boy44 but you can buy from the supermarkets in Mauritius.

Amazon have some for the exhorbitant price of £18.00 for two!

They also do a similar SA product called Tabard which Amazon stocks for about £4.75 - but plus postage!
