Health issues are generally the same in Austria as they are in the United States. Adapting to a new climate, food, water, and way of life may affect one’s health during the first few weeks but usually has no lasting effects. If you plan to travel to Austria and beyond, it is advisable to make sure that your inoculations are up to date. For more information visit the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention website.
