Do I need shots?

Postby canuck123 » Tue May 21, 2013 12:18 am

I'm leaving this Thursday (May 23) and I just realized I never asked about shots?

I'll be going to Thailand, Laos, and Vietnam.

If anyone knows if shots are important that would be helpful :) Thanks!

You should check with a travel medicine clinic quickly! You haven't got much time. Usually at minimum you need Hepatitis vaccinations and that's a series of shots. Unless you already have them? You'll may need a prescription for anti-malarials. Tetanus, typhoid...

Good luck!

Thanks for your response!
I'm going to call my doctor tomorrow. Hopefully I can get something before I leave.
