I will be backpacking throughout Thailand, Vietnam, Cambodia, and Laos from Aug 28-Sept 15th... do you think I should get the vaccinations? I would assume that we will be sticking to fairly major cities for the most part...maybe a few beaches here and there. I checked the CDC website and they recommend you get it. I have all of my other shots up to date, and will go ahead and do the malaria (my parents insist).
On another note, I just had a friend catch Dengue Fever in Thailand...be careful guys!

Here's some further reading:

Travelfish on health and safety.
Japanese Encephalitis is a "less likely" risk than some of the others -- eg Hep -- in the end it's a personal decision.
