Hi there, Rock_o.

I found a very good clinic which cover both of these vaccinations.
However, it is in Irving.

Would this be acceptable as an answer?

Kind regards,

Hey There  errol-ga

Thank you so much for your effort, this is great stuff.

My son is going to Thailand for a 6 week term of college this summer.
These two vaccinations I know we need to get, there may be others. He
is living in Grand Prairie so Irving is great.

I was thinking Ft.Worth so as to keep the cost down from going to

Can you check for other shots he may need?

Thanks for all your help ~ Rocky

Hello again.

First of all then, I'll check for the US Government recommendations
for travel to Thailand.

On the The Bureau of Consular Affairs website [ ], there is a link on the main page which
caught my eye immediately which leads to "Tips for Students" [ ], including lots of useful
information which you might like to have a read through.

The main thing though, is finding out exactly what we need for
Thailand so following a link from the students page I mentioned
earlier, we come to the homepage of the National Center for Infectious
Diseases [ ].
On the destinations page for South East Asia, it lists the
vaccinations needed for this area which are:

- Hepatitis A or immune globulin (IG).
- Hepatitis B if you might be exposed to blood (for example,
health-care workers), have sexual contact with the local population,
stay longer than 6 months in the region, or be exposed through medical
- Japanese encephalitis, only if you plan to visit rural areas for 4
weeks or more, except under special circumstances, such as a known
outbreak of Japanese encephalitis.
- Rabies, if you might be exposed to wild or domestic animals through
your work or recreation.
- Typhoid vaccination is particularly important because of the
presence of S. typhi strains resistant to multiple antibiotics in this
- As needed, booster doses for tetanus-diphtheria and measles, and a
one-time dose of polio for adults.

Taken from page: (a third of the
way down).

Quite a few then!
There is a huge amount of information on the site too.


The clinic I mentioned in Irving is part of the Las Colinas Medical
Group and are located on the Boulevard of the same name.
The site, [ ], is mainly an information
page and they seem to cover all of the vaccinations mentioned above:

For a small map and contact information, view the following page:

They seem to be a highly qualified group of doctors:

I hope this provides you with all the information that you need.
Kind regards,
