Hi

1.. Consult with your Doctor

2. Check with your travel insurance provider as many have stipulation about "recommended" holiday health care

Most folks from the US, Canada and the rest of the world do not take them. No one who lives here takes them. Almost ALL from the UK do as it is an insurance issue.

As always check with your doc.
