Eritrea is also home to several national parks, including the Dahlak Marine National Park, where visitors can snorkel and dive among colorful coral reefs and exotic marine life. With friendly locals, delicious cuisine, and a vibrant arts scene, Eritrea is a hidden gem waiting to be discovered by adventurous travelers.
Eritrea 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 Eritrea. This does not count toward routine childhood immunizations.
