Depends I guess. Thailand requires a Yellow Fever vaccination if you are coming from a country that has yellow fever; are you? I got it when I went to South America because Bolivia requires it. It lasts 10 years, so why not?

I think Hep A is a good vacc to get regardless. If you get the booster it is supposed to last a lifetime. I am in New Zealand and they just had a food contamination issue this week which people have been exposed to Hep A from frozen berries (5 cases now). I got this shot previously, but wouldn't have thought of getting it before coming here.

I heard Typhoid isn't always effective (may be different now), so that one would probably be a "meh".

you need to see a real doctor or travel nurse, asking on here is foolish.

asking medical questions on a travel forum is still foolish.
