UK 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 United Kingdom, including England, Scotland, Wales, and Northern Ireland. This does not count toward routine childhood immunizations.
