Vaccines in Peru
It is suggested for the people who are travelling to the jungle in Peru, have a vaccine against yellow fever. (According to information given by the Health Minister, there have not been any case of this illness registered in this area for 15 years).
Have a vaccine, at least, 10 days before arriving at the jungle. It is necessary to carry your vaccine certificate with you, as you will be demanded to show it along the excursion to Puerto Maldonado.
In case you arrive to our country without having taken this vaccine, you may be shot at the Jorge Chávez International Airport, the Hospital 2 de Mayo or next to the Hospital del Niño. Prices are less than US$20.00.
You may also ask your doctor about the possibilities of taking a vaccine against diphteria, tetanus, typhoid, polio or hepatitis
