I do not think what type of passport you hold has any bearing on health issues. We cannot advise you on vaccination requirements. Speak to a medical professional, for example, your practice nurse.

The vaccines that are advised by a Health Practitioner or GP, not members of the cruising public.

I totally agree with the previous answers but speak to one of the receptionists because most GP’s ask you to fill in a form stating where you are travelling to and one of the nurses will check your medical history and the up to date information then inform you if vaccinations are necessary. It saves appointments doing it this way.

I am not going to recommend particular vaccinations, because the previous advice to consult a healthcare professional is 100% correct. Contact your GP (and/or pay for advice from a travel clinic). However, don't leave it to the last minute, because some vaccinations require more than one dose. And make sure you provide full details of your destination, not just the name of the country. For instance, Iguassu straddles the border between the Argentine province of Misiones and the Brazilian state of Paranain and is in the jungle. So health risks may be very different from the rest of Argentina. Consequently, your GP practice may recommend vaccination against yellow fever and precautions against malaria.
