Repellent brand isnt particularly important just make sure it has 30-40%DEET (or diethyltoluamide) and apply 3-4 times a day (and re-apply after swimming). No need to use things like Bushmans Tropical - that stuff is 80% DEET and will melt your shoes and is no more effective!! Repellents bought in Bali are usually only 15-20% DEET and need to be applied every 2 hrs.
Yep tetnus 10yrs. MMR - yes you would have had as a child, and possibly a dose pre-pregnancy (for the rubella component). You need 2 MMR vax in your lifetime to have good immunity.
Also, if anything comes up (illness/rabies exposure etc) the BIMC (Bali International Medical Centre) is the place to go - it is Australian owned and has very good, safe medical care. Please do not travel without Travel Insurance, wherever you go!
