Christmas Island is a remote Australian territory located in the Indian Ocean, known for its stunning natural beauty and unique wildlife. The island is home to a diverse range of flora and fauna, including the famous red crab migration, where millions of crabs make their way from the forest to the sea each year. Visitors can explore the island's lush rainforests, pristine beaches, and crystal-clear waters, and enjoy activities such as snorkeling, diving, and fishing. The island also has a rich cultural heritage, with a mix of Chinese, Malay, and European influences, and visitors can experience this through the island's food, festivals, and traditions. Overall, Christmas Island is a must-visit destination for nature lovers and adventure seekers looking for a unique and unforgettable experience.

Christmas Island (Australia) Immunization Recommendations and Requirements

Before traveling, make sure you are up-to-date on all of your routine immunizations including influenza and COVID-19. Note that many vaccines that are now considered "routine" were not available until recent decades so you may not have received them at all, depending on your age and other factors. 

Infants, 6 to 11 months old should receive one dose of MMR and Hepatitis A prior to visiting Christmas Island (Australia). This does not count toward routine childhood immunizations.
