Russia is a beautiful country to spend a vacation with its magnificent monuments and age-old tradition. Tourists who are thinking to backpack to this beautiful country should, however, be aware of certain things before planning their holidays to Russia. Each country releases its own travel advisories to different countries and therefore the travelers should be well acquainted with the norms, dos, and don’ts before going to Russia or any other country in the world.
Do you need Vaccination?
Due to its sundry terrain and climate, there are few vaccines that the tourists should make sure of getting before traveling to Russia. As per the recommendations from WHO and CDC vaccinations for Hepatitis A and B, Japanese encephalitis, chickenpox, pneumonia, shingles, etc. are suggested. You can go through the latest WHO advisory and the vaccinations required for the up to date information.
Vaccinations become even more important when you are traveling with the kids. Children are more prone to catching the disease in places where they are not accustomed to living. Their immune system is yet to develop and therefore they become more vulnerable to adverse climate or health conditions.
However, many travel advisories suggest that mosquito-borne disease is not as common in Russia as in various other parts of the world. Tuberculosis, on the other hand, is still a threat to the country and therefore the travelers should get done the required tests before traveling to Russia.
The best way to combat unwarranted disease or health issues is to read the advisories carefully.
