Hello Scotslad

The only vaccine required, by law is Yellow Fever vaccine. And this is only if u have visited countries in the yellow fever zone, within the six days before entering South East Asia. I think the yellow fever zone is just in Africa and south america.

There are a list of recommended vaccines, for South East Asia, but u are only in Singapore for 4 days. In your position, i would personally not bother with any. U could just protect yourself as much as possible, by eating carefully. ie not at street stalls and cheap cafes.

I would have typhoid and Hepatitis A jabs just in case, especially for Thailand even though you'll only be there for 4 days. They are free on the NHS.
