(Editor’s Note: This article provides information, not medical advice, about the vaccines your child may need to stay safe in Bangkok.)
If your child was born in Bangkok, you will likely be given a booklet listing the routine or recommended vaccines and the time frame as to when they should be administered. Most of these vaccines are given to kids in their first six years of life, creating immunity before they might be exposed to a disease.
If you have moved here with kids, below are the vaccine lists provided by five leading hospitals in Bangkok. While there are some inconsistencies, they give you an idea of the vaccinations children in Bangkok receive. Occasionally, a vaccine is temporarily unavailable due to a manufacturing or other issue. Also, it’s best to consult with a licensed health care provider to learn more about the vaccines that are best suited for your family’s specific health and travel needs.
