Vaccinations

Recommended for all travellers

The vaccines in this section are recommended for all travellers visiting the country.

Hepatitis a vaccination is recommended for all travellers going to Cambodia. You can catch hepatitis A from contaminated food or contaminated water. In order to prevent catching it you need to practise good hygiene and frequently wash your hands with soap and water. Make sure all foods you eat have either been washed thoroughly or cooked. Drink bottled water rather than tap water - if you’re unsure as to whether water is safe you should take precautions such as boiling it or purifying it using water purification tablets.

The hepatitis A vaccine provides effective protection from the disease. You need to get vaccinated at least two weeks before you go to Cambodia. The vaccination consists of one dose. After receiving the vaccination you are protected for one year.

Recommended for some travellers

Whether you will need any of the vaccines in this section depends on the region you're travelling to, the activities you have planned and your medical history.

The cholera vaccine is not always required for travel to Cambodia and whether you need it depends on where exactly you’re travelling to and the activities you have planned. You may need it if you’re going to an area where there’s currently an outbreak or if you’re going to a remote area where sanitation is poor and the risk of outbreaks is higher.

The vaccine consists of two doses given at least seven days apart. It becomes effective seven days after you have received the second dose so you need to have the first dose at least two weeks before you travel. The vaccine schedule may differ for children.

Hepatitis b vaccination may be relevant for you if you are likely to need hospital treatment while abroad (for example because you suffer from a chronic condition). The nurse or pharmacist may also recommend it if you’re staying in Cambodia of a long period of time.

Note: Hepatitis B is a blood borne disease. It can be transmitted via contaminated needles (for example in a medical or cosmetic context - avoid getting piercings or tattoos if you’re unsure whether the needles are sterile). It is also transmitted during sex.

Rabies is a dangerous disease transmitted via animal bites or scratches.

The nurse or pharmacist will assess your risk during your consultation and make a recommendation based on your travel plans.

Why do I need a consultation?

It is difficult to say which vaccines you need without asking a medical professional. Your itinerary, your medical history and the activities you have planned all affect which vaccinations you need. It is important that a trained travel nurse or pharmacist checks what you need.

Exactly the travel vaccinations you need - no more, no less.

During your consultation, our nurse or pharmacist will talk you through the health risks at your travel destinations to check which vaccines you need. If a vaccine is not essential, we will explain your options so you can decide whether you would like to have it.


Malaria

Malaria is a serious and sometimes fatal disease transmitted by mosquitoes. You cannot be vaccinated against malaria.

Malaria Precautions

  • Cambodia is a risk country for malaria. Malaria affects many regions apart from the main cities, such as Phnom Penh, Angkor Wat, Siem Reap and Tonle Sap and you may not need malaria tablets if you’re going to major cities only.
  • The risk of catching malaria is highest in Preah Vihear, Stung Treng, Ratanakiri and Mondolkiri.
  • The nurse of pharmacist will check the latest advice for the areas you’re travelling to during your appointment and assess whether you need to use an antimalarial.
  • Regardless of which part of Cambodia you’re travelling to, you should practise insect bite avoidance to reduce your risk of infection.
