Staying in Kiev for one week - do I need immunization jabs?

Jump to last reply

I don't mean to sound paranoid but lately I keep reading in my Ukraine guidebooks that immunization for Hep A and typhoid is a good idea. They say it could be caught by eating or drinking. I intend to drink bottled water while in Kiev obviously but should I be worried about catching it in normal type of restaurants? I really don't want to get the jabs and I surely don't want Typhoid! Any feedback? Am I crazy not to protect myself before going?
