Hep. A and Typhoid shots for trip to Bali??? Really?

Jump to last reply

I'm going to Bali in December for the first time for a vacation. I heard that I need to get the Hepatist A shot and Typhoid pills (or shot) before I go. Is that right? How necessary is it? A few friends I spoke with that have gone were never advised to do this. Is this a new thing or are people becoming overly cautious?

These shots are expensive and I've heard the Typhoid shot/pills can have some miserable side effects. I'd like to be safe rather than sorry but also don't want to be putting things in my body that I don't need to.

Any and all advice is very much appreciated!!!
