What is the conflicting advice you are getting?
What to be innoculated against?
Not to have innoculations?
Firstly you really should only seek medical advice about what innoculations to have. A proper travel clinic is a better option than your GP nurse.
Asking a travel forum will get even more conflicting advice!!
I know its a UK website, but we find this a good site for reference,
Ensure you are fully insured for medical emergencies including repatriation.
As there is good health care and good hygiene and sanitary conditions in the Western world, many of the injections recommended you will have already had, including TB, Rubella, Polio, Diphtheria etc.
Most places recommend that you do need to have up to date (at least 8 weeks before you travel) the following:
Tetanus (most people are up to date with this)
Typhoid – it is an infectious disease in the digestive system and not be confused with Typhus which is caused by louse-borne bacteria.
Most people just need to be wary of the food borne infectons (Typhoid and Hep A) and follow good hygiene (hand washing after using the toilet and regularly, we normally carry a small bottle of anit-bacterial gel as whilst we might wash others might not!). Both are very easily caught, as is E-coli!
For long stays and intensive jungle treks in remote areas ask about
Japanese B encephalitis
You will need to check if you need Malaria tablets, and do check with a travel doctor or nurse not a friend or even a website. Malaria precautions are essential where there is high risk of malaria. In western peninsular Malaysia this Taman Negara National Park (around and east of Mount Tahan) and some remote inland forested areas not normally visited by tourists. The developed tourist areas of the Cameron Highlands are not normally a risk. In the eastern Malaysian provinces of Sabah and Sarawak (on the island of Borneo) malaria is widespread. However coastal urban areas of Sarawak are considered minimal risk.
Avoid mosquito bites by covering up with clothing such as long sleeves and long trousers especially after sunset, using insect repellents on exposed skin and, when necessary, sleeping under a mosquito net, using mozzie coils in your room. Check with your doctor or nurse about suitable antimalarial tablets.
Also don’t buy any medication online just to save a few quid as there is no guarantee you are getting what you pay for as on-line is plagued with fakes and you will never know what you are taking.
