During the 1990s, there were several cholera epidemics in Vietnam. Although the last major epidemic occurred in 2008, the infection remains a problem with numerous cases being reported every year. Cholera primarily affects areas of Vietnam where the infrastructure and sanitation system are underdeveloped. The same applies to communities where the level of knowledge about hygiene is low. Your risk of cholera depends on the duration of your trip and where you will be staying.

Rabies still poses a serious threat in Vietnam, with over 100 reported cases in humans in 2013. The main reason for the continued rabies risk is the large population of stray dogs in Vietnam. There is also concern that dog meat, which is commonly served in Vietnamese restaurants, can be contaminated with the rabies virus due to the illegal trade with dogs. As with other countries, the rabies vaccine is particularly recommended for travellers who will be staying in remote areas where it may take time to obtain the life-saving post-exposure treatment for rabies.

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.
