We are moving to Thailand with a daughter of 15 months. What kind of vaccines would you reccommend. Thank you in advance for your answer.

Although there is no special requirement, the following are the recommended vaccinations for Thailand:

Vaccination for 12 months:

  • MMR
  • Japanese Encephalitis
  • Chicken Pox

Vaccination for 18 months:

  • DTap – the fourth dose (combinding Diphtheria, Pertussis and Tetanus)
  • Polio vaccine – the fourth dose
  • Hib – the fourth dose (Haemophilus Influenza)

Before vaccination, the pediatrician will check your baby’s immunization history from the vaccine book. If there is any required vaccine missing, then the pediatrician will suggest the appropriate vaccinations. Therefore please make sure to bring the vaccine book along with you.

Have a nice trip!
