Japanese encephalitis : vaccin to go to bangkok in september ?
27th June, 2013
Hello, i have a big question, i booked a travel consultation to know what kind of vaccin i need to come to Bangkok in September, i have all the "basic" vaccin, dt polio, hepatitis A, B and rabies.
i came already 2 times in Thailand but it was the high season, i'm worried for the raining season... do you think i need the Japanese encephalitis for Bangkok ?
i read it's more in rural area but there are some case in Bangkok too...
any advice ?
thank you !

Not that I'm a medical expert by any means, but I don't think you need Jap E if you're only going to Bangkok. The one you may want to consider. of anything, would be typhoid.

thanks for your reply, yeah i knew that, but idk why i read there are a few case (rarely) in Bangkok when it's raining season, i hate mosquitos i was worried by dengue but Jap E is alot worse.
But the vaccin is expensive and maybe there are some bad side effect, for Bangkok maybe just a prection with clothes and DEET would be enough (i hope).
