Whether you will need any of the vaccines in this section depends on the region you're travelling to, the activities you have planned and your medical history.

Widespread immunisation for hepatitis B as a part of the childhood vaccination schedule has led to a significant decline in hepatitis cases in Turkey. However, infection rates continue to be far higher than in the UK. Hepatitis B is transmitted during sex, when sharing needles or in any other scenario which allows blood from an infected person to enter your bloodstream. The vaccination is vital for healthcare workers and everyone who is likely to engage in close contact with the local population. Tourists should avoid getting piercings or tattoos abroad, especially if hygiene standards are not met.

Turkey is classed as a high risk country for rabies. During your stay, you should avoid contact with stray and domestic animals whenever possible. There is a large number of feral cats and dogs in Turkey, which have not been vaccinated against rabies and which can be carriers of the disease. If you do get bitten or scratched during your stay it is important that you seek medical help immediately, as you may require treatment. The rabies vaccine is highly recommended for travellers who are likely to come in close contact with wildlife or pets. It is also recommended for travellers who will be staying in areas without easy access to medical care.

Why do I need a consultation?

It is difficult to say which vaccines you need without asking a medical professional. Your itinerary, your medical history and the activities you have planned all affect which vaccinations you need. It is important that a trained travel nurse or pharmacist checks what you need.

Exactly the travel vaccinations you need - no more, no less.

During your consultation, our nurse or pharmacist will talk you through the health risks at your travel destinations to check which vaccines you need. If a vaccine is not essential, we will explain your options so you can decide whether you would like to have it.


Malaria

Malaria is a serious and sometimes fatal disease transmitted by mosquitoes. You cannot be vaccinated against malaria.

Malaria Precautions

Malaria is endemic to certain areas in Turkey but the risk is classed as low in the time between May and October. This includes most popular tourist spots in Turkey such as the province of Mardin. It is important to practise mosquito bite avoidance to minimise the risk of exposure. 

Using insect repellent, wearing long-sleeved clothing and sleeping under bed nets are very effective precautions which will help you avoid bites. Travellers going to remote areas may be advised to take a treatment for acute malaria with them, in case they get sick without having access to medical help.
