What immunizations do you get for travel to Istanbul?

Jump to last reply

We leave March 12 for a trip only to Istanbul and have never had any of the hepatitis vaccinations. I looked at the CDC website and saw the whole region was "moderate" in risk for Hep A and Hep B. I can easily get the Hep B series at my local health dept, but getting the Hep A will involve much more effort (and expense, as my insurance covers no adult immunizations).
The CDC site said these immunizations were more important if you were outside of the big cities, eating at small restaurants (off the beaten path).
Not that I want to incur risk of a liver transplant in my future, but the series of shots will come to about $2000 for my husband and myself...
