Which vaccinations are recommended?

Which vaccinations are recommended for adults before a trip to a certain country or region depends mainly on the following factors:

  • Travel conditions (e.g. time, duration, travel style),
  • special risk situations,
  • Age and basic illnesses of the traveler,
  • Long-term medications,
  • Vaccination history.

The recommendations include:

  • Generally recommended vaccinations: measures for each and every traveler regardless of the travel conditions,
  • special travel vaccinations: measures taking into account regional epidemiological and / or individual travel conditions,
  • Malaria prevention.

Note Which vaccinations and preventive measures are useful or necessary in individual cases should be clarified with a doctor several weeks before the start of the journey. A decisive factor is not only which country but also which region the trip should go to. Please show your vaccination certificate to your doctor. This enables a decision to be made as to which vaccinations are required and / or should be refreshed or which vaccinations are still protected.

Danger! In some countries you are only allowed to enter if you can prove certain vaccinations. Inquire about the current situation in your holiday country in good time. The country-specific travel information from the Ministry of Foreign Affairs can be found here.
