I've decided to go travelling as a last minute thing, and have NOT had any jags!!

Vaccinations are available in Thailand. If you wanted Hep A + B and Typhoid, they need 2 or 3 follow ups, so you could get the first jab in Bangkok, hang around for 7 days, get the 2nd jab and then keep laying low, maybe in Phuket etc (eating hotel food), after 15days u could get good to go.

Many people dont get any jabs, and they are fine if they stay in the safe touristy places.

You might find travel insurance much more important than jabs, so check that out.
If you get bitten by a rabid monkey or eat some hep A, as long as u get to a doc/hospital you will most likely be fine, but you need to pay for it somehow.

best of luck.
