Some people traveling to Pakistan should consider being vaccinated for the following:
Malaria – risk for malaria in all parts of Pakistan and chemoprophylaxis should be considered. Chemoprophylaxis consists of tablets or capsules to be taken daily before, during, and after your stay.
Japanese Encephalitis – the vaccine for Japanese Encephalitis is usually recommended for people planning to stay longer than one month, for those traveling to rural areas, or those spending a lot of time outdoors.
Yellow Fever – there is no risk for yellow fever in Pakistan. Vaccination is required for individuals arriving to Pakistan from a country that carries the risk for yellow fever.
Rabies – vaccination should be considered in travelers planning to work with animals, in those spending a long period of time in Pakistan, people going to rural areas, and for children as they are less likely to report that they have been bitten or scratched by an animal. Vaccination for rabies requires 3 injections followed by 1 booster if needed for future travel.
