Guinea-Bissau is a small West African country that offers a unique and authentic travel experience for adventurous tourists. With its stunning coastline, lush forests, and vibrant culture, Guinea-Bissau is a hidden gem waiting to be discovered. Visitors can explore the Bijagos Archipelago, a UNESCO Biosphere Reserve, where they can witness traditional fishing practices and observe rare wildlife. The country is also home to several national parks, including the Cantanhez Forest National Park, where visitors can see chimpanzees and other primates. Guinea-Bissau's rich cultural heritage is reflected in its music, dance, and art, which can be experienced in the capital city of Bissau and other towns and villages. Despite its challenges, Guinea-Bissau is a welcoming and friendly country that offers a truly authentic African experience.

Guinea-Bissau 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 Guinea-Bissau. This does not count toward routine childhood immunizations.
