Vaccinations in Bangkok?
Can anyone recommend a clinic for having some vaccinations done in Bangkok? (Just adults, not kids.)

Thanks for the response. I had actually read your post a few months back and I love your blog. I read it from start to finish over a few weeks when I found it. :) Our toddler is completely up-to-date with his vaccinations thanks to the national immunization programme in NZ. I had all the usual vaccinations almost ten years ago when I started travelling and my husband thinks he had Hep A/B when he was a teenager but doesn't recall having the Tetnus shot you get when you're around 20 in NZ. Did you have any shots in Australia before you left? My friend who is a GP advised us both to get Typhoid (as it only lasts for three years) and for him to get a Tetnus shot. She also said we should get blood tests to see if we still have Hep A/B immunity. Obviously she recommended doing all that before we arrive but we don't really have much choice in the matter at the moment as we're in Australia and everything is SO expensive here. I contacted a travel clinic and they refused to give me any info - even as to what the vaccinations would cost. So I'm kind of stuck getting them in Bangkok when we arrive. Did you have any concerns about not being immunized over the first few weeks you were away? Also, interesting that they recommended having the Japanese Encephalitis shot. I was just doing some research on it - kind of gross that it's cultivated in mouse brains!!!
