There is no particular health risk in Portugal, still less in Porto, which like Lisbon is a modern city. No vaccine is recommended. However, it may be useful to check to see if your vaccines are up to date. However, the medical system in the country still needs to be improved. It is not the competence of the doctors that is at issue but the lack of doctors and a two-tier system: one medicine for the rich and one for the others... But tourists are not concerned, they will always find themselves in need of treatment, except for major problems and repatriation.
