Vaccinations

          Vaccinations - There are no specific vaccine requirements for entry into Bali, however there are a number of factors to consider when deciding whether or not to take precautions and get vaccinated against diseases prevalent in Bali and surrounding South East Asian countries including Indonesia. Much will depend on your individual situation, which you should discuss one on one with the doctor. The advice given below is general advice only and should not be relied upon as a substitute for medical advice.



 

 

     You should speak to the doctor about the following:

  • Whether your existing vaccinations from childhood including tetanus, measles mumps and rubella, and diphtheria are all up to date

  • Whether you have been vaccinated against hepatitis and typhoid in the last few years

  • Your general health and history of disease

  • Exactly where you want to go and what you plan to do while in Bali

  • The style of travel you intend on doing, e.g backpacking vs 5-star hotels, whether you will be doing adventure sports and mixing with the locals etc

  • The length and purpose of your visit You should advise the doctor of all of the above, including any risk taking activities or adventure activities you plan on doing while away.

Recommended vaccinations The World Health Organization (WHO) recommends the following vaccinations for travellers to Southeast Asia:

Adult diphtheria and tetanus - Single booster recommended if none in the previous 10 years. Side effects include sore arm and fever.

Hepatitis A - Provides almost 100% protection for up to a year, a booster after 12 months provides at least another 20 years’ protection. Mild side effects such as headache and sore arm occur in 5% to 10% of people.

Hepatitis B - Now considered routine for most travellers. Given as three shots over six months. Lifetime protection occurs in 95% of people.

Measles, mumps and rubella - Two doses of MMR required unless you have had the diseases. Many young adults require a booster.

Polio - Only one booster required as an adult for lifetime protection. Inactivated polio vaccine is safe during pregnancy.

Typhoid - Recommended unless your trip is less than a week and only to developed cities. The vaccine offers around 70% protection, lasts for two to three years and comes as a single shot.

Varicella - If you haven’t had chickenpox, discuss this vaccination with your doctor. These immunisations are recommended for long-term travellers (more than one month) or those at special risk:

Japanese B Encephalitis - Three injections in all. Booster recommended after two years. Sore arm and headache are the most common side effects.

Meningitis - Single injection. Recommended for long-term backpackers aged under 25.

Rabies - Three injections in all. A booster after one year will then provide 10 years’ protection. Side effects are rare – occasionally headache and sore arm.

Tuberculosis - Adult long-term travellers are usually recommended to have a TB skin test before and after travel, rather than vaccination. Only one vaccine given in a lifetime.
