Falkland Islands (Islas Malvinas)

The Falkland Islands, also known as Islas Malvinas, is a remote archipelago located in the South Atlantic Ocean. The islands are a popular destination for wildlife enthusiasts, as they are home to a diverse range of species including penguins, seals, and albatrosses. Visitors can also explore the islands' rugged landscapes, which feature stunning coastlines, rolling hills, and rocky cliffs. The Falkland Islands also have a rich history, with numerous museums and memorials dedicated to the 1982 conflict between Argentina and the United Kingdom. Despite its remote location, the Falkland Islands offer a unique and unforgettable experience for adventurous travelers.

Falkland Islands (Islas Malvinas) 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 Falkland Islands (Islas Malvinas). This does not count toward routine childhood immunizations.
