Once you've booked your trip, you’ll want to make sure that booking your jabs for Bali is top of your priority list. This is where we can help. Bali, Indonesia, lies in the tropics and therefore as well as your usual childhood immunisations such as tetanus, polio, diphtheria and MMR you may well require further specialist vaccinations. The injections needed for Bali can vary depending on your risk exposure. For example, if you are backpacking through remote areas for prolonged periods you may require rabies vaccination. On the other hand, if you are staying in rural areas near rice paddies where there are pigs and wading birds then you might be at risk of Japanese encephalitis. So as you can see, the vaccine requirements for Bali really depends on what you do and for how long you stay. To help you, we have created a useful guide to give you an indication of the vaccines needed for Bali in the table below.

"Don't forget, it's not all about vaccinations for Bali. You’ll also need to be aware of non-vaccine preventable diseases that are also very important. Zika virus in Bali is one of the diseases you are also at risk of catching. If you get infected with Zika virus when you’re pregnant it can cause a birth defect called microcephaly (a very small head) and other serious problems. So, if you’re pregnant you should not travel unless your journey is absolutely essential, until after pregnancy.


If you’re going on honeymoon, you will need to protect yourself from mosquito bites with insect repellent containing 50% DEET.  You and your partner will also need to use barrier contraception to avoid pregnancy and infection. To be safe, we can also test you for Zika virus on your return before planning any pregnancy. Please just ask us for any advice."

Frequently asked questions
  • The total cost is likely to vary depending on which vaccinations you need for your trip. You can see the recommended vaccinations and the price per dose in the table above.

  • This really depends on the travel vaccinations you have. Japanese encephalitis lasts 2 years before you require a booster but typhoid is every 3 years.

  • Some vaccine schedules like the rabies vaccine can take a whole month, so we’d recommend coming to see us at least 6 weeks before. Don’t worry though if you’re a last minute traveller as there are accelerated schedules of some vaccinations to make sure you’re protected before you go.

  • Most of the travel vaccinations have very few side effects. Japanese encephalitis is a common vaccine recommended for Bali that can occasionally cause muscle aches and fever.

  • We’d advise that you don’t travel to Bali as there’s a risk of Zika virus infection that can affect your pregnancy and the baby.

Bali, an island of the Indonesian archipelago, is one of the most popular destinations in South East Asia. It’s well known for its active volcanoes, rice paddies and pristine beaches. Bali is also a spiritual haven with religious sites such as the cliffside Uluwatu temple and the holy city of Ubud. More recently, Bali has also made a name for itself as a yoga and meditation retreat destination but has nevertheless maintained its lively beach resorts, such as Kuta. For this reason, Bali welcomes a diverse range of travellers from backpackers, beach holiday makers, honeymooners and to those simply seeking enlightenment. Whatever you do, it’s important that you travel safely and so we recommend you contact us for advice on vaccines for Bali.
