What Vaccinations do you need While Coming to Turkey?



Including multiple choices for travelers, Turkey offers you to sunbath in the Eagan and Mediterranean locations, sunny days in fascinating luxury and boutique hotels, pure beaches and seas besides ruins, historical places, and natural beauties. Unlike Brazil or Africa – you need to be specifically vaccines-, Turkey doesn’t want you to be vaccinated for occasional reasons. Let’s see which vaccines might we need for traveling to this lovely country.  
 
Hepatitis A
Being vaccinated against the viruses inside the food and water. Actually, not a compulsory vaccine, just for a recommendation. Unlike Egypt, any threat is not seen in Turkey 
 
Hepatitis B 
Being vaccinated against the viruses for body fluids and blood. Same as hepatitis A, you may be vaccinated for self-defense during the journey in crowded places. 
 
Typhoid
Another vaccine for precaution is Typhoid. Infecting through dirty food and water, you need to be vaccinated in the last two years. It lasts five years if you take the vaccine orally. Swallowing a pill is the option to take the vaccine orally 
 
Rabies
Rabies, which are infected by saliva or infected animals is not a compulsory vaccine but contains high risk, especially for long-term visitors, who get in contact with animals much. 
 
Anthrax
Passing through animal or biological agents, Antrax is also not compulsory and scarcely seen too. The vaccine may be recommended for U.S. employees or contractors. 
 
Meningitis
Meningitis, which is an illness caused by bacterias, spores and viruses, inflammation in the spinal cord and brain. Compulsory for not vaccinated before or containing high risk, especially for students.
 
Polio
Infected through food and water. There is no clue about Polio but it can be disastrous if you don't care. It is an important vaccine for travelers not only Turkey but also everywhere. Doing it one shot will be enough to stabilize.   
 
Measles & Mumps & Rubella (MMR)
Many ways to get infect to this illness. However, the cure is to take one shot adult booster will be enough for a person who was born after 1957. Also compulsory for the travelers coming to Turkey.  
 
 
 
Tdap (Tetanus, Diphtheria, and Pertussis)
These diseases infect by airborne and wounds. Just for a precaution, one dosage adult booster will be enough  
 
Chickenpox
Not a deadly disease passing by airborne and direct touch. However, it makes an adult worse than a child. Given a dosage to the people who haven't infected chickenpox before. 
 
Pneumonia
There are two different vaccines for the disease passing by airborne. You need to be vaccinated both of them if you are over 65 or have a low immune system. Not compulsory things you need to do
 
Influenza
The most popular disease among them. The components of it change every year. Also, you need to do this vaccine more than one during your life.
