What injections do you need for Thailand?

What injections do you need for Thailand?
When it comes to injections that are needed to visit Thailand, they generally fall into two different categories. These two categories are the vaccines that are necessary for immigration purposes or to get a visa, and injections that are a good idea to have due to the prevalence of diseases in the country.

Plan ahead for your trip to Thailand to ensure that you have enough time to get all of your vaccines before embarking on your flight.

Injections for Thailand:




  • Polio and TDAP




In the first category, are Polio and TDAP or Tetanus / Diphtheria / Whopping cough (£52), MMR or Measles / Mumps / Rubella (£72), Hepatitis B (£65), and Meningitis B (£150).The price given is per dose, with MMR requiring two doses.


  • Influenza and Hepatitis A




In the second category are Influenza (£10), Hepatitis A, which can be combined with the Hepatitis B vaccine (£130), Cholera (£62), and Japanese Encephalitis (£112). Travelers who will be trekking in rural areas may also want to get vaccinated for Tuberculosis (£75) and Rabies (£85). People who are over the age of 65 may also wish to get the Pneumonia vaccine (£42), and Shingles (£190). Depending
