    If you want to spend most of your time hanging above a hole in the ground, surrounded by flies, and slowly dehydrating until somebody finally admits you to a hospital - I recommend skipping the immunizations. If you actually want to have a good time: get some shots.
    Malaria is only one of the culprits - if you are clever you contact the tropical institute of the country you are residing in - they will help you out. over 7 years ago

    Malaria can be deadly so be careful: for avoidance take your own mossie net and take loads of repellent ... and depending on exactly WHERE you are going, then consider something like Malarone.

    Bite prevention is the best approach because Malaria isn't your only worry: Dengue fever seems to be a rapidly growing problem from Bali to Burma, so try to avoid getting bitten even by a single mosquito! over 7 years ago

    Get the shots! Your life is worth it.

    Honestly, anything that hinders your travel - and is potentially life threatening - just isnt worth the risk. Malaria is very prevalent and is simple to avoid - some tablets, DEET strength bug spray and a net.
