Abstract

Children are traveling internationally with increasing frequency, and some are traveling at young ages. While excellent sources of information exist about travel vaccines, malaria prevention, and general advice for children, clinicians may face situations where evidence-based recommendations are lacking. This article discusses some common challenging travel vaccine scenarios and approaches to malaria prevention and general travel advice for children.
