Vaccinations to Consider for Bali

Before you get on the plane you know that there are already a whole bunch of things that need doing first. The most common question that people ask is about vaccinations, which ones are required, which ones are recommended and which ones are not entirely necessary.

The answer is different for different people and will end up with what you feel comfortable with. Many people have lived for years in Bali and Indonesia without ever having a single vaccination or a single problem related to not having one. Your health is important and if you feel that you are better safe than sorry then you should start your vaccination regimen at least a month before departing.

Rabies in Bali

At one point Bali was known to be completely Rabies free despite all of the wild dogs running around.  Within the past couple of years however there have been Rabies outbreaks that have tarnished Bali’s Rabies-free image.

Many tactics have been introduced to try and control the spread of Rabies, with some of them being helpful, some of them not and some being just plain controversial.  One of the problems that exists is that since Rabies is still a new disease in Bali, it is largely misunderstood by the majority of local Balinese, both in its severity and in its treatment.
