Myanmar vaccinations: which ones do you need?

If you travel to Myanmar, then it is wise be aware of certain health risks. We recommend vaccinations for Myanmar. Most of these are not mandatory, but the vaccines may protect you against infectious diseases. Which specific vaccinations and immunisations you require for Myanmar partly depends on the regions you plan to visit and on the duration of your stay in the country that is also known as Burma.

Myanmar is located in Southeast Asia and has a tropical climate. Travelling to Myanmar means traveling to traditional Asia. The country is nestled between neighbouring countries Thailand, Bangladesh, China, India and Laos. During its military regime, there was little to no tourism in Myanmar, however, in recent years this destination is becoming increasingly popular, and rightly so. Myanmar offers beautiful natural scenery. Think of vast lakes, white sandy beaches and spectacular limestone caves. Also, the country is known for its many temples and Buddhist shrines.

Wherever you plan to go during your journey in Myanmar, you will need to protect yourself well against possible (tropical) diseases and avoid mosquito bites as both malaria and dengue occur. Our KLM Health Services nurses will gladly provide expert travel advice and are happy to tell you which vaccinations you require for Myanmar.
