No vaccination is mandatory for your trip to Vietnam but we would like to give you some recommendations regarding vaccines. This list is recommended by the Pasteur Institute.

Japanese encephalitis

For long or frequent stays: 2 injections spaced out for a month, single booster 6 months later. When immunity must be acquired quickly (in case of imminent departure), an accelerated regimen of three doses spaced at D0, D7, D21 and a fourth dose administered 1 year later can be used only in adults.

In case of prolonged stay in isolation (children, as soon as they walk): three injections on D0, D7, D28 (or 21)

In case of prolonged stay or in precarious hygiene conditions (children, from the age of 2 years); an injection 15 days before departure.
