Advice For Travellers

Pakistan continues to struggle to eliminate polio transmission. While the risk for the average traveller is low, travellers in any country that reports cases of polio can reduce their risk of exposure to polio virus by ensuring that their childhood vaccinations, including polio, are up-to-date prior to travelling.
