Most UK citizens have been vaccinated against diphtheria as a part of the polio, diphtheria and tetanus vaccine. After 10 years you may need a booster to stay protected when travelling to a high risk area.

If you haven’t had a booster in the last 10 years you should have one at least two weeks before you travel.

Diphtheria is a contagious infection which causes a fever and symptoms affecting your airways. In severe cases, it can be fatal.

Hepatitis A is a viral infection which is transmitted via contaminated foods and water. The risk of infection is particularly high in regions with poor sanitation but you will need to protect yourself against the infection regardless of where in Indonesia you are staying.

The vaccine takes two weeks to become fully effective so you need to make sure you visit a travel clinic in time to be protected when you set out on your trip.

In addition to getting vaccinated, practise good hygiene and wash your hands regularly with soap and water. Avoid raw and unwashed food and take precautions such as boiling drinking water or using purification tablets when you’re not sure whether it is safe to drink.

As with diphtheria, vaccination against tetanus is standard in the UK. You will need to have a booster for polio, diphtheria and tetanus if you haven’t had one in the past 10 years.

Tetanus is caused by bacteria which live in soil and manure. You can catch it if the bacteria enter a wound, for example if you have been bitten or scratched by an animal or have hurt yourself.

Typhoid is endemic to Indonesia and you can catch it from contaminated food and water. To avoid food and waterborne diseases, wash and ideally peel fruit and vegetables. Make sure any food you eat has been thoroughly cooked.

You can also catch typhoid from contaminated water so it’s also important to ensure that you drink water that is safe. If unsure, boil the water or use water purification tablets.

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.

Like hepatitis A and typhoid, cholera is a food- and waterborne disease and you need to practise good food hygiene to reduce your risk of cholera.

The cholera vaccine may be relevant for travellers going to rural areas as well as areas with poor sanitation. Your nurse or pharmacist will assess your cholera risk based on where you’re travelling to as well as the activities you have planned and make a recommendation as to whether you should have the vaccine.

Hepatitis b is a blood borne disease. It is transmitted during sex as well as via contaminated needles (for example when undergoing a medical procedure or a cosmetic procedure involving equipment that hasn’t been sterilised).

The vaccine is usually recommended for travellers who are visiting a country where hepatitis b is endemic for a longer period of time as well as anyone likely to come in close contact with the local population (for example aid workers and volunteers). The nurse or pharmacist may also recommend it if you’re planning any activities that put you at a higher risk of injury.

Hepatitis b can cause a range of symptoms. It can become chronic and cause liver damage.

Rabies is a disease transmitted when you’re scratched or bitten by an animal that carries the disease. This could be any wild animal such as a bat or a fox but also a domestic animal such as a dog or cat. Although animals who have rabies will develop symptoms as the disease progresses, you can’t know for sure whether an animal carries it. Rabies is almost always fatal so it’s very important that you seek medical attention immediately if you’re bitten or scratched by an animal while in a country where rabies is endemic.

The nurse or pharmacist may recommend the vaccine if you will be visiting rural areas with limited access to medical care or if you are planning to work with or handle animals. They may also recommend it if you’re staying for longer than one month.

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

Malaria is a health risk in Indonesia.

  • High risk areas include: East Nusa Tengarra, Maluku, North Maluku, Papua and West Papua
  • Low risk areas include: North Sumatra, Jambi, Bengkulu, Borneo/Kalimantan, Central, South East and North Sulawesi, West Nusa Tenggara

While you will need antimalarial tablets when visiting a high risk area, insect bite avoidance may suffice if you’re going to low risk areas only. The nurse or pharmacist will assess your need for an antimalarial based on your medical history and itinerary.

Most tourist resorts, such as Java and Bali as well as Jakarta and the main cities are no to low risk regions.
