USEFUL INFORMATION

Health and Vaccinations 

There are no mandatory immunisations for travellers to Poland though you should be up to date with Typhoid, Tetanus, Polio and may consider boosters for Diphtheria and Hepatitis A. Please note we are not medical professionals and so we highly recommend you seek advice from your local GP or travel centre as to the correct immunisations and preventative treatments.  

Tick-Borne Encephalitis (TBE) is present in all forested areas of Poland and travellers visiting these areas are at risk, especially through taking part in outdoor activities such as hiking and camping. Peak transmission season is typically between March and November.  

A TBE vaccination is now available in the UK. Two separate injections are required at least two months prior to travel and so please plan ahead to leave time for both.   https://www.nhs.uk/conditions/tick-borne-encephalitis/

In the churches and monasteries please dress respectfully. This may mean long trousers for men and skirts for women.  Ladies should also cover their shoulders.
