Recommendations to Travelers to the London Olympic Games July 27 – 12 August, 2012

Due to substantial prevalence of measles worldwide and particularly in Europe, and since the conditions conducive to the spread of the disease, the Ministry of Health recommends to travelers to the London Olympics and whose date of birth is 1957 onwards, should receive at least one dose of MMR vaccination, if they did not already receive two doses or if they have not already contracted the disease. Whoever was born before 1957 can be considered to have received the vaccination.


Travelers to Poland and Ukraine must be vaccinated with the routine vaccinations in accordance with the Ministry of Health’s recommendations, in addition to the usual general recommendations and precautions.


The vaccination may be obtained at the travelers’ clinics.
