When and where to get vaccinated
Vaccination must be done at least three weeks before departure: during this time the body will have time to form an immune defense. Vaccinations against some diseases are done in several stages: in this case, at least 30 days should pass between them, and then preparation for the trip should begin at least 2-3 months.
In some cases, vaccinations against various diseases can be combined and made on the same day. Check this information with your doctor. There, in the clinic, they will tell you whether there is a state (free) vaccine available. If you do not need vaccinations, you can buy it yourself at the pharmacy, bring it to the clinic, and they will do it for you.
