QuestionThailand commonly asked questions

What are the most frequently visited destinations for New Yorkers?

New Yorkers frequently visit the following locations: Bangkok, Phuket, Pattaya, Ko Samui, Chiang Mai, Krabi, and Ko Pha Ngan.

What vaccinations are recommended for travelers visiting these destinations?

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

Of these vaccinations, two are specific for travelers visiting Thailand:

Hepatitis A
  • Travelers can be exposed via food and/or water.
  • The vaccination process for Hepatitis A involves receiving two shots approximately six months apart from each other.
  • The patient is permanently immune to Hepatitis A after both shots are administered.
Typhoid
  • Travelers can be exposed via food and/or water.
  • A Typhoid shot must be administered every two years.

Hepatitis A and Typhoid are strongly recommended for Thailand. But, there are two other vaccinations that travelers going abroad are recommended to receive:

Polio
  • Everybody receives 4 Polio shots. However, after the age of 21, an additional booster shot is required. Then the traveler is permanently immune.
  • Before leaving for Thailand, it is strongly recommended that the traveler have received the last booster shot.
Tetanus
  • All children are given mandatory Tetanus shots. However, every ten years routine booster shots are required.
  • Before leaving for Thailand, it is strongly recommended that the visitor have received their most recent Tetanus booster shot.

Are these vaccinations required for visiting Thailand?

While they are not legally required, the Center for Disease Control highly recommends them for the safety and well-being of all visitors to Thailand.

Do travelers need a Yellow Fever vaccination before visiting Thailand?

The United States is not an “at risk” country for Yellow Fever. Therefore, American travelers to Thailand will not need a Yellow Fever vaccination unless they have already visited an “at risk” Yellow Fever country. If a traveler has previously visited a Yellow Fever country, then they will need a vaccination and the proper medical documentation before entering Thailand. The vaccination is vital not just for the safety and well-being of the traveler, but also to prevent the visitor from accidentally spreading Yellow Fever to Thailand.

If I decide to visit other areas in Thailand, will additional vaccinations be required?

If travelers decide to visit other locations in Thailand, a medical consultation with a doctor is strongly recommended to assess the need for any additional vaccinations.

Is it possible that I could have already received some of these vaccinations in the past?

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

Vaccinations for Typhoid and Hepatitis A are only given for visitors traveling abroad.

What if I am not able to remember which vaccinations I have received?

If a traveler cannot remember if they have previously received certain vaccinations or lack the necessary medical documentation, they are still highly recommended to get another round of booster shots. There is no medical risk in receiving a vaccination more than once.

Will I need Malaria protection?

Yes,travelers to Thailand will need protection against Malaria. While many major cities are not at risk of Malaria, exposure can still occur.

What protection against Malaria is available?

Two common medications covered by insurance are Malarone and doxycycline. Both medications are taken daily and are extremely effective for combating Malaria. However, only one medicine will be prescribed to a traveler based on the length of their stay in Thailand. Uninsured travelers are frequently prescribed doxycycline because it is more affordable.

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

In addition to vaccinations and anti-malaria drugs, it is highly recommended that visitors bring the following: insect repellent, clothing designed to prevent mosquito bites, Imodium (or another type 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 prescribed medications.

How early should I be immunized before leaving for Thailand?

Visitors should ideally seek immunization a few weeks before departure.

What will occur during my travel health consultation?

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