Recommended are: Hepatitis A for all travelers to China, Hepatitis B and Typhoid if going to rural or non-tourist areas, Yellow Fever (for other countries), Japanese Encephalitis for all non-coastal provinces (especially for hikers), plus malaria pills for southern provinces, and traveler’s diarrhea antibiotics. If interested in getting the above protection, you should make an appointment with the health center ASAP.
