Vaccinations

"The biggest risks for travellers to Vietnam tend to be associated with food and water borne diseases, mosquito bites and the traffic. Common-sense and care is needed at all times to ensure a good, safe holiday."


 

          Vaccinations - Ask your doctor what vaccines and medicines you need based on where you are going, how long you are staying, what you will be doing, and if you are travelling from a country. The recommended time to start your vaccines is four to six weeks before leaving home. Those who are planning a longer visit, or where if the planned trip is likely to bring them to more rural parts of Vietnam, should book their consultation earlier to ensure that there is sufficient time to complete the vaccine courses. Vietnam is endemic for Malaria and the risk of transmission occurs in many regions of the country. Therefore, malaria prophylaxis may need to be considered, depending on your itinerary.
