Japanese encephalitis Vaccine completition necessary?
Hi, i recently got the first 2 shots of this vaccine, be4 departing for the East, but the 3rd shot leaked out when we tried to administer it. Am I still protected against this, or do I have to get the 3rd shot? What are the symptoms of the disease?

Worried, the best would be to complete the course. The symptoms include fever, severe headache, tiredness and body aches and pains (like a severe flu). Good luck.
