It is recommended that all infants aged 6-11 months should receive an MMR vaccine before travelling abroad (ideally at least 2 weeks before travel). As measles is circulating widely globally, this recommendation applies to all travel abroad.

This is based on the NIAC recommendation* that infants aged six months to less than 12 months of age should receive one dose of MMR vaccine [prior to travelling]. To note, a dose
given at less than 12 months of age does not replace the dose recommended at 12 months of age.
