The required vaccinations vary and depend on the areas you plan to visit and on the duration of your stay in Argentina. Argentina is a vast country in the south of South America. The country has a diverse, predominantly temperate climate: dry in the west, subtropical in the north and cool and bleak sub-Antarctic in the south. There is plenty to see in Argentina: the tropical forest at the Iguazu Falls in the north close to Brazil; the fertile pampas in central Argentina and the mountain plateaus of Patagonia in the south. The capital Buenos Aires is a definite must-see. If you plan to visit other South American countries as well, you may need additional vaccinations. Furthermore, in Argentina you should protect yourself well against diseases, the bright sunlight and mosquitoes. Malaria is prevalent in Argentina. Our KLM Health Services nurses are happy to tell you which vaccinations you require for Argentina and gladly advise on how to have a healthy holiday in Argentina.
