Vaccinations in Beijing



There are no current major health risks in Beijing, but vaccinations are the best way to avoid any medical emergencies while traveling. Being healthy is a good way to start your new life in your new home.

Nonetheless, the city's local health bureau is deployed to carry out vaccinations against H1N1 flu, which is given for free and is funded by the government. The common flu virus vaccination is also offered free of charge to any residents including expats with or without a residence permit. Pregnant women, children and babies who are much prone for viral diseases are especially recommended to get the vaccination.  

One must also secure immunization against contagious diseases like pertussis, Malaria, mumps, rubella and chicken pox. Moreover, expats are advised to have vaccinations for hepatitis A and hepatitis B prior to relocation.

Even if there are no health certifications required when visiting Beijing, the city health bureau recommends that would-be expats and travelers to Beijing are protected with the right immunizations and vaccinations.

A consultation with your physician in your home country before traveling to Beijing is advisable prior to scheduled trip as well as obtaining international health insurance for better coverage.
