There is no health risk when travelling to San Francisco and the United States. The health level is the same as in France. No special vaccines are required. On the other hand, note that the American health system is much less efficient than ours and an unexpected medical consultation can be very expensive. Therefore, provide special insurance if you stay there for a long time. Note, however, that while the beaches are beautiful, not all of them are authorized for swimming. Find out about tide times and the direction of the currents, which are sometimes dangerous. Do not swim alone, too far from the coast. Avoid sudden diving into the water after prolonged exposure to the sun, especially since the Pacific water is quite cold (below 15°C in summer). Beware of sunburn! High temperatures prevail in the desert near the city and the sun's rays can be aggressive and dangerous
