I am trying to discover what vaccinations were given to BOAC cabin crew during training in 1969-1970. In particular was Yellow Fever vaccine included? I know it is a long shot that anyone will know this piece of info but it would be a great help if anyone has the slightest information or could advise a good place to start researching. Many thanks!
Yellow Fever was required for BOAC fight crew at that time so I'm almost certain cabin crew would also have been vaccinated.
The certificate lasted for ten years and then revaccination was required. At least one pilot reacted badly to vaccination and was partly disabled and lost his licence as a result.
Other flight crew vaccinations were Cholera, which was a nuisance as it only lasted 6 months, Typhoid (3 years), Tetanus (10 years) and Polio (5 years - later 10 years). Again I'm fairly certain cabin crew would have had the same regime.
