Mosquito borne illnesses are a significant problem in the tropics. While you need not be concerned about dengue or malaria in big cities and resort towns, it’s high risk in rural Thailand.
Travel medical clinics keep current information on malaria zones. To combat malaria, a variety of anti-malarial medications are available. They are typically prescription but a few have bad side effects. Talk to your doctor about the correct one for you.
Anti-malarial medicine is typically started before entering a malaria zone.

Another must-do is use of a mosquito repellent containing DEET. For travel to malaria-zones, pre-treatment of clothing with Permethrin is often recommended.
Finally, Zika Virus is present in Thailand at the moment. The exact status isn’t fully known, but take precautions against being bit with an insect repellent which includes DEET.
Vaccination for Prevention: Travel to Thailand
It’s important to ensure you’ve had your childhood vaccines. If your parents were “anti-vaccination”, it’s best you see a medical specialist prior to international travel.
Most Medical Doctors suggest you’re current on tetanus, seasonal influenza, and Hepatitis A vaccinations. According to many physicians, Hepatitis B vaccination is likely a good idea as well. However, this is between you and your doctor.
At the moment, a few travel clinics are suggesting Japanese encephalitis vaccination for some travelers. The suggestion is based on your profile and exactly where you’ll visit. As for Typhoid, it’s often suggested for travelers who try different foods or are more apt to try street food. Oral Typhoid vaccination lasts roughly 4 years. While vaccination decisions are between you and your doctor, preventative measures go a long ways.
