    i got that one 2 days ago for going to china (also in about 6 weeks time) in one single combined jag. My arm still hurts from it .

    To the guy going to bangkok: You will probably need quite a few vaccinations. The longest immunisations seems to take 3 doses over 28 days. The only people who can tell you exactly what you need is a specialised travel clinic. Phone them up immediately.

    I can give you a list of what i need for going to china (for a year). It might be useful as a rough guide. I needed Diptheria and Tetanus, Hepatitis A, Hepatitus B, Japanese Encephalitis, Polio, Rabies, TB (BCG) and Typhoid. Infact i already had almost all of those without knowing. The Only ones i actually needed were Hep A and Typhoid which i got there and then for £15 and Jap Encepalitis and Rabies, which i've booked up later and will need a couple of injections. Those will cost me about £100 in total.

    typhoid and diptheria will probably cost about £10-20 . U've gotten off fairly easily.
