Adoption Travel Health Precautions
Traveling to meet your child? Don't get sick!
Recommended Vaccines: Routine boosters of diphtheria and tetanus, poliovirus, varicella (if needed), and MMR vaccines are recommended, along with typhoid, hepatitis A, and hepatitis B.
Malaria: Little to no risk; you should still try to avoid insect bites.
Other Issues: Hepatitis C and E and tuberculosis have been noted in the region, and increased cases of meningitis and encephalitis have been reported in Almaty, Kazakhstan’s major city. Tick-borne encephalitis is a problem in mountains and forests, especially April through June, so if you travel to those areas, take extra precautions to avoid tick bites.
