Japanese Encephalitis Vaccine

Japanese Encephalitis is a virus found in birds and pigs. It is a viral brain infection that is being transmitted through the mosquito bites from the Culex tritaeniorhynchus and Culex vishnui groups. There is no person to person transmission while human to mosquito transmission is rare. 


According to the CDC, “From the time a JE vaccine became available in the United States in 1993, through 2017, only 12 JE cases among US travelers were reported to the CDC.” The Japanese Encephalitis Vaccine, the best protection against Japanese Encephalitis, is available at Voyage Medical. It is given to adults aged 18–65 in three doses, including a booster. After a week, a second dose can be given and should be done 1 week before traveling to areas with Japanese encephalitis risks. The booster shot should be given one year after the first dose, especially if there is a continued risk of Japanese encephalitis infection or the potential for re-exposure. It provides at least six years of protection.

Why is the Japanese Encephalitis Vaccine so important?

According to WHO, “The case-fatality rate can be as high as 30% among those with disease symptoms. Of those who survive, 20–30% suffer permanent intellectual, behavioral, or neurological sequelae such as paralysis, recurrent seizures, or the inability to speak. 


Most of us are asking, “What is the treatment for Japanese encephalitis? ” There is no specific treatment, and severe illnesses are treated by supportive therapy, which may include hospitalization, respiratory support, and intravenous fluids. So the best way to get protected, aside from getting away from mosquitoes, is to secure a Japanese encephalitis vaccine for your protection. Go to Voyage Medical Primary Care to get the best medical advice and Japanese encephalitis vaccine you need.

Why Are People Vaccine Hesitant

Vaccine hesitancy is a complex issue influenced by misinformation, distrust in healthcare, perceived disease rarity, safety concerns, cultural beliefs, and social networks. Addressing it requires clear communication, community engagement, improved vaccine access, and rebuilding trust in the healthcare system. Public health initiatives can improve vaccination rates and protect communities.
