Who will be vaccinating you
Dr Gowda’s top tip for Indonesia
Beware of Cyclospora infection in Indonesia. You can get infected with this parasite by eating fruits and salad products (such as coriander, lettuce, etc) that have been in contact with contaminated water and soil. Cases have been reported in return travellers from Indonesia.
To prevent food and water borne infections, you should avoid fruit and vegetables that have not been washed with safe water even in highly regarded resorts.
There is a high risk of malaria in some areas of Indonesia. For specialist travel health advice call Travel Klinix
Recommended malaria tablets for Indonesia
It is important you are aware of the risk of malaria and avoid mosquitoes bites when travelling in Indonesia. Depending on the nature and duration of your journey, you may still require malaria tablets. Please ask us for advice.
What is malaria?
Mosquitoes spread malaria by biting mainly from dusk till dawn. It is a serious and potentially life-threatening infection. You are at risk of malaria in most of the tropical regions of the world but most cases occur in Sub Saharan Africa. In 2015 there were 212 million malaria cases with an estimated 429,000 deaths. 90% of these cases and 92% of malaria deaths are in Africa.
This can be anything but the most common malaria symptoms are fever, chills, headache and overwhelming body and muscle ache. If you experience any of these symptoms within 3 months of travelling to a country where malaria occurs then you should contact your doctor urgently; diagnosis is quick and easy with a simple blood test. If you are diagnosed and treated promptly you should make a full recovery. If, however, you delay seeking help, malaria can be difficult to treat and you may become seriously ill.
You can prevent malaria in four, easy steps. The A, B, C, D of malaria prevention is easy to remember:
Awareness of the risk
Bite prevention (particularly at night time by use of repellent or nets)
Chemoprophylaxis (use of appropriate malaria prevention tablets)
Diagnosis (prompt diagnosis and treatment)
For more details on malaria see Advisory Committee on Malaria Prevention (ACMP) Guidelines

Additional travel health advice and risks for Indonesia
You are at risk of Dengue fever and other insect borne diseases such as Zika virus and Chikungunya. If you are pregnant you should consider postponing non-essential travel until after pregnancy. By avoiding insect bites, you can reduce the risk of these diseases.
If you are staying in Indonesia for more than 4 weeks, you may be asked to provide an International Certificate of Vaccine Prophylaxis ( ICVP) for polio. This should have been given at least 4 weeks before and within the last 12 months. If you are unable to do this then the airport authorities may vaccinate you upon leaving the country.
Indonesia general information
Indonesia is a vast and diverse archipelago of islands straddling the equator. Its jewel in the crown is Bali, home to ancient temples, smouldering volcanoes and lush paddy fields. The Indonesian people’s hospitality is unrivalled and wherever you go you are welcomed with a warm smile and polite enquiries of your journey.
The fauna also is varied; the Orang Utan and the Sumatran tiger live in the Northern island of Sumatra while the famous Komodo Dragons are isolated in the more distant, small islands of Komodo and Rinca in the East.
Whatever you do, it is important that you travel safely and so we recommend you contact us for advice on vaccines.
