Recommended Vaccines When You Travel to Asia

1) Hepatitis A

Risk increases with duration of travel and is highest for those who live in or visit rural settings, trek in back-country areas, or frequently eat or drink in areas with poor sanitation.

 

2) Typhoid Fever

Risk is higher where environmental sanitation and personal hygiene may be poor. The adventurous eater venturing “off the beaten track” should also consider vaccination.

 

3) Japanese Encephalitis

Risk for short-term travellers and for those staying in urban centres is very low. Risk increases with prolonged visits to rural settings, and outdoor, evening and night-time activities(eg cycling, camping, working outdoors, sleeping inunscreened structures).

 

4) Rabies

Should be considered in most parts of the world if exposure to animals is expected. Travellers spending time outdoors, especially rural areas, and who are involved in outdoor activities (eg cycling, camping, hiking outdoor work, caving) are at particular risk. Children are also considered higher risk because they tend to play with animals and may not report bites.

Note: This is a guide only. Advice by your healthcare professional will vary depending on destination, duration of travel, types of accommodation and what types of activities you take part in.
