Article: What Are The Health Risks For Expats In Thailand?

Post Posted: Wed Jun 25, 2014 3:43 am

Thailand is known to be relatively hygienic and safe, and those who visit the country do not have much to worry about. The hygiene standards in some areas may not be up to the mark, but it does not pose any major health risks. There is a professional healthcare system in place and the hospitals provide good services. However, as someone who intends to travel to Thailand, temporarily or for permanent residence, it does help to be aware of any possible health risks and safety measures.

Vaccinations
Before travelling to Thailand, make sure that all routine vaccines are up to date.

These include measles-mumps-rubella (MMR) vaccine, polio vaccine, chickenpox vaccine, diphtheria-tetanus-pertussis vaccine and the yearly flu shot.

Probably the biggest health risk is Thailand is dengue & food poisoning. Healthcare in Thailand in is generally very good and affordable but it is always recommended to have travel insurance in case of Emergencies for. Vaccinations in Thailand are cheap compared to the USA for example and can be given at most hospitals or medical clinics. Most doctors in Thailand are able to speak English to a small degree, there is a very good English speaking doctor in Chiang Mai, Northern Thailand called Dr Hawkins. She works at a healthcare medical clinic in Chiang Mai called CM Mediclinic. If anyones is seeking medical attention in there, then I would recommend you visit her.
