    I am going to be spending two months between Thailand, Cambodia, Laos, and Vietnam starting next March. I have done some research about what sorts of shots and medical precautions I should take but I'm not sure my insurance will cover them, plus I am in Japan now and seeing a doctor can be confusing to say the least. Does anyone have any advice about specific precautions to take and whether or not it would be a reasonable idea to get stuck in Bangkok? I was thinking Hepatitis, Japanese Encaphalitis, and Anti-Malarials...any help would be much appreciated. Thanks

    It's not difficult to get the vaccinations in Bangkok, but bear in mind that some are not single-dose shots. The Travel Doctor website is a good resource.

    For anti-malarials, it really depends on where you're going -- see our story on malarials for more info.
