    VACCINATIONS
    No vaccinations are required. However, visitors are advised to have up-to-date inoculations for Cholera, Hepatitis A and B, Malaria, Typhoid, Tetanus, Tuberculosis and Japanese Encephalitis.

    Malaria is a mosquito-borne illness and is prevalent in only the most remote regions of Vietnam especially during the rainy season when mosquitoes breed. There are several ways to reduce the possibility of contracting malaria. Mosquitoes are most active at dawn and dusk and so it’s advisable to wear long sleeves, trousers and socks at these times and to apply repellent to any exposed skin. It is best to consult with your doctor on the best preventative measures.

    FOOD & WATER
    Fresh fruit and vegetables should always be peeled or washed thoroughly with purified water. Bottled water should be used at all times for drinking. Boiled drinks such as coffee or tea are fine. Ice is usually OK at restaurants, but should be treated carefully.

    MEDICAL FACILITIES
    Over the counter prescription drugs are widely available in major cities, but it is best to bring frequently used medicines from home. It is also recommended that visitors bring a basic travel first-aid kit with band-aids, anti-infection creams, mosquito repellant, and the like. There are several medical clinics in Hanoi and Saigon staffed by foreign medical personnel.
