Yellow Fever Vaccination

Post by sand_dancer » Sat Apr 20, 2013 10:45 am

Good day Guy's and Girl's.

I have just been to the Bangkok Hospital to try and get a Yellow Fever vaccine..... They do not do them....

Does anyone know if there is somewhere in HH that can give me the jab..... Or do I need to go to Bangkok ?

Thanks

When I got four immunisations (two each arm in one day) in was in a clinic near the traffic lights at Pizza Hut, on Phetkesem Rd coming into town. Dont know if they need send for YF though as not many places look for it now. Might be worth checking them out.

I am not sure about YF, but I do remember that there were some vaccinations that even leading hospitals were not allowed to give and they had to be given at govt. public health clinics

Only Africa and certain countries in South America require them now. My sister visiting Africa 6 months ago didn't need one for SA, but needed one for ? (next door to SA) or she couldn't get back into SA. I didn't need one for Venezuela some years ago but assume somewhere does down there as they're still publishing it as one of the two continents in the world. You did need it in Southeast Asia, but that was back in the 60's and 70's. One jab is good for 10 years. Pete :cheers:

You won't get Yellow Fever in Hua Hin... I tried last year. As far as I know there is only one place in BKK and its the tropical diseases hospital or university. It was easy to find one I was given a map from Mrs. GN. See if I can find more info... forgot the details.
You can also get malarial tablets.
Cheers,
GN.

I'm pretty sure this is it, definitely near Victoria Monument. You can take a van to the station very close. Phone them to
confirm.
