Recommended vaccinations for Bahrain
Diphtheria is a serious throat infection, which infects from person-to-person through the air. The vaccination should be less than 10 years old otherwise a booster is needed.
Hepatitis A (infectious hepatitis)
Infectious hepatitis infects through contaminated food and water. Vaccination consists of two injections about 12 months apart, which protects for up to 25 years. The first vaccination protects for 12 months. The hepatitis A vaccine can be combined with the vaccine against hepatitis B .
Tetanus is a complication to wounds contaminated by soil. If there has been a vaccination within the past 10 years it is not necessary to give a booster in case of wounds and accidents. Tetanus vaccinations are usually given in combination with diphtheria vaccine. If you are previously vaccinated, the vaccine can be given right up to departure.
Risk of malaria in this area is small, and prevention by malaria tablets is not recommended. Protection against mosquito bites by using impregnated bed nets at night will reduce the risk.
