Are you travelling to Bali? Then it is wise to make proper preparations. Certain vaccinations are recommended for Bali, some of which are in fact mandatory. Vaccines reduce the risk of catching infectious diseases that occur in Bali and protect you and your (infant) child.
Which vaccinations you require for Bali, depends on the length of your stay. Some immunisations are always advisable; others are only needed if you plan to stay on the island for a longer period. Also, you may need additional vaccinations if you plan to continue your travels to other parts of Indonesia or to popular destinations such as Thailand or Cambodia.
Bali is a stunningly beautiful island in Indonesia and a very popular backpacker destination. Bali’s natural beauty is dazzling: volcanic mountains; lush rainforests; white sandy beaches and much more. In addition, Bali is known for its friendly people and the many historic temples. The country has a tropical climate with an average annual temperature of approximately 30 degrees Celsius.
Unfortunately, this pleasant climate comes with tropical diseases and other illnesses against which you may not be protected. Vaccines can guard you against these. Also, you will need to protect yourself against the fierce sunlight and avoid mosquito bites (malaria and/or dengue). Our nurses gladly inform you about the immunisations and vaccinations for Bali and are happy to tell you how to prepare for a healthy trip to this wonderful Indonesian island.
