- Check your vaccinations needed for Thailand
- Bites and Stings: Chikungunya, Dengue fever, Filariasis, Japanese encephalitis, Malaria, Scrub typhus, Zika virus
- People can get chikungunya if they are bitten by a mosquito carrying the virus. About four to seven days later, the infected person develops a sudden fever and severe joint pain. Pain is especially common in the knees, ankles, small joints (especially in hands and feet) and any previously injured area. Other common symptoms are a rash and headache.
- The only way to prevent chikungunya is to prevent mosquito bites. Wear long sleeves and long pants, and use insect repellents to prevent mosquito bites.
