As per WHO record, the recent outbreak faced by the country was Middle East respiratory syndrome coronavirus (MERS-CoV) in the year 2017. However, since then there is no information regarding the outbreak of such illness again.

Those who are travelling for a short duration, the recommended vaccinations against Tetanus and Diphtheria, Hepatitis A and Typhoid. However, if you are in the country for a longer period or if trekking or other activities are in the bucket list you should consider covering the other ailments such as Rabies and Hepatitis B.

The Routine Vaccinations for Malaysia Include

Vaccination Details

Rabies vaccination Rabies is not a major risk in Malaysia, still, it is recommended by the CDC and WHO for those who involve in outdoor activities and come in contact with animals
Tetanus vaccination Boosters are given in combined form for diphtheria-tetanus-pertussis vaccine
Polio vaccination In childhood
Japanese encephalitis vaccination If you’re going to stay for more than one month, depending on what time you are travelling or where you are going
Hepatitis B vaccination It is optional for Malaysia
Hepatitis A vaccination You may get infected by Hepatitis A through contaminated food while in Malaysia
Cholera vaccination No record of Cholera, so you don’t need this vaccination
Typhoid Typhoid can be transmitted through polluted food or water in Malaysia. WHO or CDC recommends this vaccine for most travellers, if you are going to visit remote areas with less sanitation or if you are an audacious eater.

 

Special Mention

Proof of vaccination is required in case of travelling to some countries (for example yellow fever or polio). This is an official document to be availed as an International Certificate of Vaccination or Prophylaxis (ICVP) before entering or after leaving a particular country. For instance- Saudi Arabia requires proof of vaccination from the visitors arriving from Hajj and Umrah pilgrimages against certain types of meningitis.

Likewise, the Malaysian government requires proof of vaccination against Yellow Fever for travellers coming from the country with a risk of Yellow Fever, especially from African countries. Even if ICVP isn’t required, it is always better to keep a track of the vaccinations that you have taken.  This will help the doctors to treat you well in case of an emergency.

  • Due to its humid climate, mosquitoes tend to be present throughout the year. malaria prophylaxis is recommended depending on your travel plans or itinerary. Moreover, another vector-borne disease Dengue fever occurs all the time. The Dengue cases have been considerably increased in past years, especially in Kuala Lumpur.
  • If Rabies is concerned, Perlis, Kedah, Penang and Sarawak in Malaysia have been declared as Rabies infected and if you are travelling to any of them then don’t forget to get your vaccination fixed.
  • In case of a medical emergency when abroad, you can dial 999 or 122 for an emergency ambulance.
