vaccinations

Fodorites:
I love this site. I think I'm addicted. I've been doing almost nothing but reading all the trip reports and other great info for the last month. With your help, I've put together a 23 day trip to Vietnam (11 nts total in Vietnam including Hanoi, Halong Bay, Hue, HoiAn, Saigon, 3nts in Siem Reap, 4 nts in Bangkok and 3 nts in Chiang Mai. Will be leaving US on Jan 24 '09. Hopefully, the weather won't be too wet or too chilly.Mayra and others have been most helpful. I'm now re-reading for restaurant suggestions. Also, would like some suggestions on vaccinations. Will definitely be getting Hep A and tetanus/diphterra. Not sure if we will need typhoid or maleria. Any commentary on these would be greatly appreciated.

pwrwhite, you've asked exactly this same question on three different threads. Here's your thread where I answered your questions: http://www.fodors.com/forums/threads...7&tid=35156446

If you can't find a previous post of yours, just click on your name and all of your posts will come up as a list.

If there are parts of your question I haven't answered, do ask for specifics.

See if what I wrote to you previously answers your questions. If it does not, ask more questions by just replying to this thread.

Yes Kathie, you answered my questions and I appricate the input. We will be doing the typhoid, Hep A and tetanus but still undecided about the maleria prevention. Looking forward to reading what the other Fodorites chose to do preventively.

If you do a search here, you'll find many, many posts about people's decisions regarding anti-malarials. There are lots of interesting threads about malaria. Personally, I took malarone while in Siem Reap. But the real question isn't what other people have done, but what is best for you.

You might consider the combined Hep A and Hep B vaccine (Twinrix). Seemed like the standard recommendation when we went to our travel clinic in Canada.
