I've never had this shot. I'm in Pattaya. Did you go to a hospital or clinic? Do you remember where? Thanks.

And thanks General for the heads-up.

Just ran into my vaccination book looking for something else & I realize that gave out bad info. 2nd vaccination is 7-14 days after the 1st. 3rd is 28 days later.

In Pattaya it was the hospital down by soi 4 or 5 and on second road. I was staying at the Sabai Lodge which is close.

I've walked by it. That would be Pattaya Int Hospital on 5. Well located after a trip to Soi 6

Apparently you can get the newer JE vaccine in Thailand and it's only one shot, one time.

StroppyChops,
just go to any pharmacy outlet, get the product for around $ 22, add Riel 2000 for syringe, needle, distilled water and an alcohol pad and inject the product yourself. It’s not injected intravenously – just goes into the shoulder. You can do it – you seem to be a big boy. :beer3: Just ram that needle in.

Und so kommt es dass das Wasser

I had it a few years ago as part of my job (circa 2008-2009). Got a skin sample later on at Pasteur (they prick you and check the size of the wound 3 days later or something). To be honest, why would you guys be worried about that?! I think you'd need to be sleeping in a pretty remote area (jungle) to get it.

It's definitely around in SR city - no need to be in the jungle.

Japanese Encephalitis is also known as Yellow Fever.

Strange as I always thought they were a Chinese band that combine Chinese pop music and lyrics with psychedelic rock?

LOL! I have a little training in that area, and am a diabetic, so no big thing!
