Vaccination Advice For Mongolia
Mongolia does not have any requirement by immigration or customs for proof of vaccinations when entering the country. Your doctor or medical practitioner may advise the following immunisations: Diphtheria, Hepatitis A, Hepatitis B, TB, Tetanus & Typhoid. Some may also advise to have vaccinations against rabies.
For short stays in Mongolia the risk of any of the above is low. In our experience your doctor will err on the side of caution and you will need to decide if you want to go ahead with these vaccinations or not. Note that there may be aspects of your medical history which also change this advice.
