Anybody vaccinated already? Can we get it at GP?

Not yet approved by HSA.

HSA said they will expedite the assessment but still need about 6 months.

We have not considered getting the dengue vaccine.

I do remember reading sth like it is not for very young children and adults above a certain age.
Kind of limited in its usefulness as from past reports, it seems like the elderly are mostly the ones who develop complications but they won't be able to get the vaccination even if they want to.
