Dengue Pre-vaccination Blood Test

$94.16

The Dengue pre-vaccination screening test is used to determine if a person has had previous dengue infection.

What is dengue?

Dengue is a viral disease spread by Aedes mosquitoes, which can be painful and life-threatening. It is common in tropical regions, including Singapore.

Just within Singapore, more than 11,000* people have caught dengue fever since January this year. This is already 5,000 more cases than the combined total of 2018 and 2017

Who is suitable for dengue vaccination?

People from 12-45 years of age and have evidence of previous dengue infection.

Previous dengue infections may produce mild/no clinical symptoms. This means that people may have been infected with dengue before without knowing it. Since a second infection can be life-threatening, it is important to prevent it.

Is a screening test required before the vaccine is given?

Unless you have medical records of previous dengue infection, you are required to take a blood test first.

The dengue vaccine, Dengvaxia, is beneficial only for people who have been infected with the dengue virus before. The dengue pre vaccination screening will show the presence (or absence) of dengue antibodies in the blood and confirm if you have had a previous infection.

Only people who display a positive dengue screening (within ages 12-45) are eligible for vaccination.
