Japanese Encephalitis vaccine in Malaysia and Borneo

Jump to last reply

Hi,

Just wondering whether it's worth getting the Japanese Encephalitis vaccine for 3 and a half weeks in Malaysia? I'll be staying in KL, Penang and Langkawi for about 3 nights in each place, and then will be spending 11 days in Borneo (Sandakan area) on a volunteering project (not working in rice fields or near pig stys).

I'm reluctant to get it due to the cost and will be slathering myself in 97% deet anyway...but obviously if it's a must I will bite the bullet and do it.

Any assistance would be appreciated - I will be speaking with a travel doctor as well but I'd like a couple of opinions...
