I found a website with certain medications etc to take to China they are as below:
Medical/First Aid Kit Checklist
* Elastoplasts, bandages, gauze, safety pins and tweezers, anti-septic cream
* Sunscreen and hat!
You could also consider taking:
* DEET or another insect repellent, a mosquito net, and permethrin (used to impregnate clothes, rucksacks and mosquito nets). Important if you plan to travel to South China.
I was just wanting to see if any one else can suggest any other items aside from medical supplies to take, for example is anyone taking a warm jacket for when it gets cold? I am definately taking my laptop could not live without it I dont think, ipod, camera, grammar books and activities etc etc... Can people suggest anything to take?? I am also considering having the Japanese B Encephalitis injection what are people's thoughts on this? I am currently in the process of get Hep A & B and have had Typhoid and Influeza.... The Japanese Encephalitis is really expensive and wanted to get your thoughts on it?

Packing wise I went with the following stuff:
No medical supplies at all but can always pick stuff up as you need it plus as I'm doing loads of board crossings and would rather not take anything that might cause any delays.
As for jabs I got my boosters (tetanus etc), Hep A&B, Typhoid and did end up paying for Japanese Encephalitis. It's not cheap but as I'm planning to spend quite a lot of time in Asia over the next few years its a worthwhile investment I suppose. The one I didn't get because of cost is Rabies.
