I just asked my brother and seems like he knows nothing of this mysterious pandemic.
However if it's cold/flu or measles related then all good coz I had my jab early this year (if it lasts that long).

We have to get vaccines beforehand? Oh no, I never knew about this. Can I go to any private clinic and get the vaccines? What do I need to say to the doctor?

Noted..... Do we have any vaccines against measles?
You can get vacinnation against Flu/colds. I already got mine, called influenza vaccine.. If Im not mistaken, the doctor did mention once a year. Better be safe then sorry.

It's part of the MMR vaccination. Malaysian kids receive two doses of MMR as an infant and when they are 7 years old. Those born before 2002 don't receive this.

Only girls get the rubella vaccination when they were a teen back then.

But you see, there are many different types of flu also... the vaccination provided is for general flu or to protect against certain specific type of flu? Just out of curiosity hmm.gif
*
The vaccination for in(flu)enza only covers one strain when there are hundreds of strains out there. And one particular flu strain mutates every year.

The flu is important for those who are likely to get complications from flu like elderly groups, immunocompromised patients, etc.

If you are a healthy person, some experts might say it's not necessary.

And some of us might have been infected with flu and we got over it (thinking it's just a common cold infection) without even realising it.

Yes that makes sense. I should think elderly or infants going should at least get the jab as precaution. As for the average adult, it's likely fine without the vaccination.

I think its better to confirm what epidemic/disease that is spreading in Japan. If not this will cause unnecessary worry for anyone. That is how normally gossip spread without any proof...I heard from a friend. Its not that I am saying anyone of you is lying, but without any source its just hearsay.

I agree, it will cause unnecessary panic among people. But I do agree epidemic or not, infants and elderly should get proper vaccination before going Holiday - Japan or not. They are more susceptible to germs, virus etc thus it wouldn't do them harm to have better protection before going for trips overseas.

Just to chip in, annual/seasonal flu jabs don't give resistance against ALL types of flu. They only protect against what the experts predict will be the most common serious flu vaccines for the upcoming year/season.

Example: https://www.cdc.gov/flu/about/season/flu-se...n-2018-2019.htm

QUOTE
What viruses will the 2018-2019 flu vaccines protect against?

There are many different flu viruses and they are constantly changing. The composition of U.S. flu vaccines is reviewed annually and updated as needed to match circulating flu viruses. Flu vaccines protect against the three or four viruses (depending on vaccine) that research suggests will be most common. For 2018-2019, trivalent (three-component) vaccines are recommended to contain:

A/Michigan/45/2015 (H1N1)pdm09-like virus
A/Singapore/INFIMH-16-0019/2016 A(H3N2)-like virus (updated)
B/Colorado/06/2017-like (Victoria lineage) virus (updated)
Quadrivalent (four-component) vaccines, which protect against a second lineage of B viruses, are recommended to contain:

the three recommended viruses above, plus B/Phuket/3073/2013-like (Yamagata lineage) virus.


If you take the flu jab and get exposed to any variant other than these 3-4 variants, if your immune system gets overwhelmed you will still get sick anyway.
