QuestionCambodia commonly asked questions

What are the most frequent travel destinations for New Yorkers?

Travelers from New York frequently visit the following locations: Angkor Wat, Phnom Penh, Siem Reap, Sihanoukville, Kratié, and Battambang.

What vaccinations are recommended for these destinations?

The CDC strongly recommends four vaccinations for travelers visiting Cambodia: Hepatitis A, Typhoid, Polio (Booster), Tetanus (Booster).

Two of these vaccinations are specific for travelers visiting Cambodia:

Hepatitis A
  • Travelers are at risk of being exposed via food and/or water.
  • The Hepatitis A vaccination process involves two shots approximately six months apart from each other.
  • After both shots are administered, the patient is immune to Hepatitis A for life.
Typhoid
  • Travelers are at risk of being exposed via food and/or water.
  • Typhoid shots must be administered once every two years.

Hepatitis A and Typhoid are strongly recommended for Cambodia. However, there are two other vaccinations that are recommended for travelers going abroad:

Polio
  • After an outbreak in Indonesia in 2005, neighboring countries in Southeast Asia have occasionally experienced cases of Polio.
  • Everyone receives 4 Polio shots. However, one additional booster shot is required after the age of 21. Afterwards, the traveler is immune for life.
  • Before departing for Cambodia, it is strongly recommended that the traveler have received the final booster shot.
Tetanus
  • All young children are given mandatory Tetanus shots. However, routine booster shots every ten years are required.
  • Before leaving for Cambodia, it is strongly recommended that the traveler be up to date with their most recent Tetanus booster shot.

Are these vaccinations required for traveling to Cambodia?

While they are not required by law, the Center for Disease Control highly recommends them for the safety and well-being for all travelers.

Do travelers need a Yellow Fever vaccination before traveling to Cambodia?

Because the United States is not a country at risk for Yellow Fever, travelers to Cambodia will not need a vaccination unless they have already visited a Yellow Fever country. If a traveler has visited a Yellow Fever country before, they will need a vaccination and the proper medical documentation. The vaccination is crucial not just for the safety and well-being of the traveler, but also to prevent the traveler from accidentally spreading Yellow Fever to Cambodia.

Will additional vaccinations be required if I decide to visit other areas of Cambodia that were not specified above?

If travelers wish to visit other areas, a medical consultation with a doctor is strongly recommended to assess the need for additional vaccinations.

Could I have already received some of these vaccinations in the past?

Yes, it is very possible that travelers may have already received certain recommended vaccinations. All young children are given Tetanus and Polio vaccinations. However, Tetanus booster shots are required once every ten years and an additional Polio booster shot is required for travelers over the age of 21.

Vaccinations for Typhoid and Hepatitis A are only given for travelers going abroad.

What if I cannot remember which vaccinations I have received?

If a traveler cannot remember if they have already received certain vaccinations or lack the proper medical documentation, it is still highly recommended that they get another round of boosters. There is no medical risk in getting a vaccination more than once.

Will I need protection against Malaria?

Yes, travelers to Cambodia will need Malarial protection. Most of Cambodia (with the exception of Phnom Penh and Angkor Wat) is at risk for Malaria.

What Malaria protection is available?

Two of the most common medications covered by insurance are Malarone and doxycycline. Both are daily medications that are extremely effective for combating Malaria. However, only one medicine will be prescribed based on the length of your stay in Cambodia. For uninsured travelers, doxycycline is chosen because it is more affordable.

Will I need additional medications, prescriptions, or health preparations?

In addition to vaccinations and anti-malaria drugs, it is highly recommended that travelers bring insect repellent, clothing designed to prevent mosquito bites, Imodium (or another form of diarrhea medication), iodine tablets, portable water filters, sunblock, antibacterial hand wipes, alcohol-based hand sanitizer (containing at least 60% alcohol), aspirin, ibuprofen, and any other medication prescribed by your doctor.

How early should I be immunized before departing for Cambodia?

Ideally, travelers should seek immunization a few weeks before departure.

What will happen during my travel health consultation?

During your travel health consultation, the doctor will review which vaccinations will be necessary for your trip and review your immunization records. Therefore, it is highly recommended that travelers have an itinerary or list of possible destinations on hand for the consultation. These consultations are designed to help you, so please feel free to discuss whatever medical concerns or needs you might have.
