My husband is French and his whole family lives over in France. We want to go visit them around the holidays. Our daughter is 10 months and hasnt has a single vaccination. I would like to keep it this way for as long as we feel comfortable, but a friend mentioned that my DD might need certain vaccinations to be able to travel overseas?

Anyone know the truth behind this? If so...what vaccines are needed and is there a waiver for "religious reasons"?

I have no idea if anything's changed in the last few years, but I know we traveled with our completely vax-free 2 yr old to the UK back in 2006/7 and had no problems whatsoever.  I believe they recommend them per WHO guidelines, but don't require anything in the EU; no one asked us about it when we entered.

 

Here's a few links:
