Prevention

There is a Japanese encephalitis vaccine which is recommended for people who live or travel in certain rural parts of Asia (see names of countries above ), and for laboratory workers who are at risk of exposure to the virus. Also, take the following measures to protect yourself from mosquito bites to prevent the disease:

  • Remain in well-screened areas.
  • Wear clothes that cover most of your body.
  • Use insect repellents that contain up to 30% NN-diethyl metatoluamide (DEET) on skin and clothing.
