Yellow Fever is strongly recommended for many countries in Central America and Equatorial Africa as it is endemic in these regions.  In fact a few countries will prohibit entry without a certificate from a registered clinic.

Malaria is a problem in many areas of the world and prophylactics such as tablets should be taken prior to leaving for such places. The type of tablet varies according to the area you will be visiting.

Hepatitis B is recommended for those travelling for longer periods such as gap-year travellers and voluntary workers where possible contact with body fluids may arise. This is a course of three injections.

Similarly Tick and Japanese Encephalitis is common in South East Asia and precautions should be taken, particularly by vaccination.
