What is Japanese Encephalitis?

Japanese Encephalitis (JE) is a viral infection transmitted by mosquitoes, primarily in rural and agricultural areas of Asia. While most infections result in mild symptoms or no symptoms at all, severe cases can lead to inflammation of the brain (encephalitis), causing symptoms such as headache, high fever, neck stiffness, disorientation, coma, seizures, and paralysis. In some cases, JE can be fatal or lead to long-term neurological complications.

Importance of the Japanese Encephalitis Vaccine

The Japanese Encephalitis vaccine is a safe and effective way to protect yourself from this potentially life-threatening disease, particularly if you are traveling to areas where JE is prevalent. Vaccination significantly reduces the risk of contracting JE and the serious health problems it can cause.

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), symptoms of Japanese Encephalitis can include:

  • Fever
