Recommended vaccinations

The Health City of Vienna (MA 15) recommends, among other things, at least four weeks before the planned trip to review their own vaccination. In general, the standard vaccinations according to Austrian immunization schedule, especially tetanus and diphtheria is recommended.

Food and drinks are the most common sources of infection (eg hepatitis A ).

Pets can also transmit serious diseases. After a bite injury, a doctor should be consulted without hesitation.
