Are there any vaccinations I should get or other health precautions to take as I prepare for my move to your city?
No, but expats should be aware that animal-related outbreaks (such as black plague) do sometimes occur in Mongolia. However, the government is generally able to control such cases before they pose a threat.

Medical insurance can be arranged through local insurance companies, with cash accepted as payment, or you can contact the International SOS Mongolia Clinic.
