Japanese Encephalitis Vaccine in Singapore

Protect Yourself Against Japanese Encephalitis with Vaccination

Japanese Encephalitis (JE) is a serious infection caused by the Japanese Encephalitis virus (JEV), which is transmitted through the bites of infected mosquitoes. The disease can lead to inflammation of the brain, causing severe complications or even death. Vaccination is the most effective way to prevent JE, particularly for those traveling to or living in areas where the disease is common.


What is Japanese Encephalitis?

Japanese Encephalitis is primarily found in rural and agricultural areas of Asia and the Western Pacific. Symptoms range from mild, such as fever and headache, to severe, including high fever, neck stiffness, disorientation, seizures, and coma. Severe cases can result in long-term neurological damage or death.


Who Should Get Vaccinated?

Vaccination is recommended for:

  • Residents: Individuals moving to live in JE-endemic regions.
  • Long-term Travelers: Those visiting JE-endemic areas for a month or more.
  • Short-term Travelers with Increased Risk: Travelers staying for less than a month but engaging in outdoor activities or staying in rural areas during the JE virus transmission season.
  • Travelers with Uncertain Plans: Those traveling to endemic areas without a clear itinerary.


Vaccination Schedule

The vaccine is administered in a single dose. A booster dose may be recommended for those at continued risk of JE infection.


Side Effects and Precautions

Common side effects include pain and tenderness at the injection site, mild headaches, muscle aches, and low-grade fevers. Severe allergic reactions are rare but require immediate medical attention.
