1.What vaccinnations should I receive before entering China?

If you make an appointment to consult with your local GP he will advise you in regard to the vaccinations that are required or advised for people to have before coming to China. There is a sanctioned list authorized by the World Health Organization that all GP,s use as a reference when advising on and administering vaccinations.  Usually a full course of all the vaccinations will take about one and half to two weeks.
