Japanese Encephalitis is an infection of the brain transmitted by mosquitos most commonly found in rural parts of Asia and the Pacific Rim. The highest prevalence rates are in places where rice cultivation and pig farming are common. For people travelling on short-term trips to urban parts of Asia, vaccination for Japanese Encephalitis is not necessary. Certain activities such as camping, or field work can increase a person’s risk, however, requiring vaccination. If you are not sure, please consult our friendly GPs at Midland Health to work out what is needed.
The Japanese Encephalitis vaccine is offered in 2 doses, up to a month apart for adults and children over the age of 3. Children under the age of 3 will receive a reduced dose. Accelerated programs are available for immediate cover if needed, and a booster is recommended after 10 years if risk of exposure is ongoing.
