Trans-Siberian Vaccination Advice

Disclaimer: The information on this page is meant as guidance only and any final decision on which, if any, immunizations to have is your own responsibility.

There are no compulsory vaccinations required for Russia, Mongolia or China (unless coming directly from a Yellow Fever infected area) and, from our experience, the majority of travellers do not have any additional vaccinations beyond updating Tetanus and Polio if required.

However, your doctor is likely to err on the side of caution and recommend that you have the vaccinations listed below. That decision is, of course, up to you and it could be that there are aspects of your medical history which only your doctor knows and have been taken into account when giving you advise.

A good website to get the latest advice is NHS Fit For Travel.

Recommended immunizations: Cholera (Asian and Far Eastern regions), Diphtheria, Hepatitis A, Hepatitis B, Japanese B Encephalitis, Meningitis, TB, Tetanus, Tick-Borne Encephalitis & Typhoid.
