Ecuador, including the Galápagos Islands

Ecuador is a small country located in South America, known for its diverse landscapes, rich culture, and friendly people. The country is home to the famous Galápagos Islands, which are a popular tourist destination due to their unique wildlife and stunning natural beauty. Visitors can explore the islands by boat or on foot, and see a variety of animals such as giant tortoises, sea lions, and blue-footed boobies. In addition to the Galápagos, Ecuador offers a range of other attractions, including the historic city of Quito, the Amazon rainforest, and the Andes Mountains. With its warm climate, delicious cuisine, and welcoming locals, Ecuador is a must-visit destination for any traveler.

Ecuador, including the Galápagos Islands 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 Ecuador, including the Galápagos Islands. This does not count toward routine childhood immunizations.
