Is it safe to travel to Ukraine now?

We were thinking about a weekend getaway to Kiev with friends for a while, but not sure if it is safe there now regarding the measles outbreak. Has anyone traveled there recently?

Have you been vaccinated against measles? If so, then go. If not please stay home.

Best to read travel advisories, that way you can decide for yourself whether it is safe to go.

I agree with Tulips.

If you have been vaccinated or otherwise have immunity what is the actual concern?

If you haven't been vaccinated or otherwise have immunity, where do you think you're safe to travel?

I am not traveling to Ukraine but I have been advised to get a MMR booster considering recent outbreaks in my local area in California and because I will be traveling to a country (Serbia) with an outbreak of Measles in September.

Contact your health professional if this might be something you need to do yourself - I do not want to provide health advice inappropriately.

Thank you, guys! Seems like the outbreak is under control now, but I have made the appointment for a vaccination anyway.

Do not worry so that not in all parts of Ukraine is unsafe. In Kiev at the moment is already safe. We were in April in Ukraine. We were in both central and western Ukraine. Were in Kiev is a beautiful city with beautiful people))) And believe me, we didn’t make any injection of measles)

It is safe to travel to Ukraine!

I live in Ukraine all my life as I was born here, I live in Odessa city.
Want to say that itís safe in Ukraine, almost everywhere, expect territory where military activity takes place.
So if you visit Ukraine, donít be scared and wish you good luck and all the best!
