Vaccination for Singapore

If most cases, you do not need a vaccination for entering Singapore. The only instance you would need a vaccination is if you were in a country where yellow fever is endemic up to six days before you arrive in Singapore.

Hepatitis A and B are prevalent in Singapore, so you might want to get a hepatitis jab before coming. The country does suffer from dengue fever epidemics from time to time, but there is no vaccine for that - you just have to take care about mosquito bites and use necessary repellants.

Getting travel insurance would be advisable, so that if you should fall sick, your insurance can pay for medical services in Singapore.
