How important are immunizations in Southeastern Asia?

Hi Loujean, and welcome to TP.

You'd be better off posting your question in the Asia thread.

Hello loujean
It depends where u will be going.
If u stay at resorts, u won't need any.
If u will be travelling around, eating off food stalls and inexpensive restaurants, or being sexually promiscuous, vaccinations are advisable. However, I think almost all illness(ones u could possibly be vaccinated for) u could get, except rabies, are curable. But i am not sure just how sick u would get and how long it would take to get better. The rabies vaccination does not need to be given in advance. U have 14, after being bitten by an animal, to get it.
