Indonesia vaccinations: which ones do you need?

Are you travelling to Indonesia? Then it is important that you prepare your journey well as certain vaccines are recommended for Indonesia. The required vaccinations vary and depend on the areas you plan to visit.

Indonesia is a vast archipelago in Southeast Asia. The most well-known holiday destinations in the archipelago are Java, Sumatra, Lombok and Bali. Indonesia has a tropical climate and consists mainly of jungle. This means that it is quite hot and humid: the average year temperature is approximately 30 degrees Celsius. Unfortunately, this pleasant climate comes with tropical diseases and a variety of other diseases against which you may not be protected. Vaccinations can protect you. Also, you will need to protect yourself both against the strong sunlight and against mosquito bites – mosquitoes may carry dengue or malaria.

Our KLM Health Services nurses will gladly inform you about the required immunisations and vaccines for Indonesia and are happy to tell you how you can healthily travel to the largest island state in the world. Click here to make an appointment (in Dutch) with a nurse.
