2Many people are very cavalier about getting jabs....don't be them.
First you need to get in touch with a doctor at home who REALLY KNOWS his onions with regards to tropical travel. - also tell him you are going to work with animals.
THe sort of jabs you might be urged to consider are hep A and B - these are spaced over a period of time so get started!
There are other things you might want to consider working with animals - tetanus, and rabies for example.
Have the people you are working for offered any advice? You should ask them anyway.
I take it you are working for Edwin - who runs a magnificent (not in appearance) establishment on a shoestring and against all odds - one of the few establishments in Thailand that really achieves stuff.

4Make an appointment at your nearest travel clinic.Most G.P.'s will offer you both the Hep jabs and tetanus which I think Includes Polio and cholera also free of charge rabies jabs you will need to pay for.It's three jabs over a month and the Hep B Is 3 jabs over 6 months though I think there Is one they can give you if your short of time.Defo get them done though.Better safe than sorry.
