Italy is also famous for its delicious cuisine, including pizza, pasta, and gelato. With its beautiful architecture, stunning art, and delicious food, Italy is a must-visit destination for any tourist.

Italy, including Holy See and Vatican City 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 prior to visiting Italy, including Holy See and Vatican City. This does not count toward routine childhood immunizations.
