    What vaccinations are necessary or advisable for Laos? We're UK residents and we're staying entirely in Luang Prabang - plus day trips on the Mekong. Expecting that no vaccinations are required - but are any advisable?

    None required, but recommended would be hepatitis-a, typhoid, and a tetanus booster.
