Vaccination and preparation for the holiday

For many of us, vacation is the most favorable time of the year. This is the time of rest, sports, communication with friends, trips to new places and much more. And certainly, no one wants to spend this time on solving health problems!

An increasing number of Ukrainians prefer to spend their holidays abroad. Staying in Europe and North America does not pose a particular danger to health. With tropical and subtropical countries the situation is somewhat different. Infectious diseases, which are very rare and nonspecific for the mid-latitudes, pose a certain risk to tourists in the eastern countries.
