Hi, do you old buggers suggest getting booster shots or vacines before coming to Thailand. I believe the Thai consulate website states "no vacinations needed" . I had a hep. B vacine in 2000. Also, how prevelent is Malaria? are local villagers plaqued by it? is it wise to take the pills often?
-on a lighter note, the Canadian Jr. Hockey team are world champs, finally beating the Russians 6-1, and going undefeated in the tourny.

Well, to reply to my own ?, I just got a combination Hepatitis A&B shot called Twinrex, here in Canada. It cost around 30$ and is given in a series of three shots. It's claimed to last over 15 yrs.

and you will see a reply in there.
The general idea is to listen to your local doctor.
