We are looking into the possibility of adopting, not right away but sometime, and I am wondering about what issues might come up with travel and not vaxxing. The countries we would be looking at would be China, Bulgaria, and maybe Ukraine. As far as I know they have no vax requirements for us to travel but what diseases might we come into contact in those areas? I know HepB is a big one but I understand that transmission rate would be very low without direct contact with contaminated blood. Is that correct?
What can we do to help prevent transmission of disease?
Would you travel with children in those areas? Age-specific possibilities? We have children that would be in their teens all the way down to toddlers.
Also, do any of those countries vaccinate for smallpox? Thanks,
