Can Qdenga be given to travelers visiting dengue-endemic regions?

Hi doctor, one of my friends from overseas is planning to visit malaysia soon, but they are worried about dengue. Can they get the qdenga vaccine to protect themselves?

Morning, and thank you for the question.

Qdenga may be considered for travelers visiting areas where dengue fever is prevalent, especially if they are staying for an extended period or traveling during peak transmission seasons. However, individual risk factors and vaccination guidelines should be discussed with a healthcare provider.

Still, Qdenga is preferable over other dengue vaccines, such as Dengvaxia, which requires the patient to have been previously infected by dengue, making it a much more accessible option for a lot of people.

To find out more about the various guidelines and eligibility criteria for the Qdenga vaccine, consult a healthcare professional with your questions and even book a Qdenga vaccination.
