Immunisations and ENG1

I have to renew my ENG1 and when booking the appointment the receptionist has asked me to bring records of my up to date immunisations but when asked specifically what they were she could not answer.
My question is what immunisations are the Doctors looking for (for somebody who has no idea really where their job will be beginning and ending).
After a bit of googling it looks like the Hepatitis ones I already had last from 20 years to life.
However, the Thypherix vaccine for Thyphoid apparently only lasts 3 years. I havn't had that one for almost 5 years now. 
Could you give some insight into what the Doctors are looking for as I can't seem to find any specific requirements that are set in stone.
Thank you.

You don't need any - once you see the ENG1 Doctor they will know better than the person who answered the phone. It has to be an approved Doctor though.
