Hepatitis A is a viral liver infection spreads through contaminated food and water.

Hepatitis A is endemic to Brazil, so there is a high risk of catching it if you are travelling there.

Tetanus is a bacterial infection that can cause severe muscle spasms and stiffness. The bacteria that causes tetanus, Clostridium tetani, infects the body through burns and wounds, most commonly through puncture wounds. If you haven’t had a tetanus booster in the last 10 years, make sure you get a booster dose before travelling to Brazil.

Typhoid fever is a bacterial infection that spreads through contaminated food and water, and is recommended for all travellers to Brazil. Much of the sewage in Brazil is not treated, so sewage that is contaminated with the bacteria that causes typhoid can easily get into drinking water, or water used to clean food, increasing the risk of infection. It is recommended that all travellers to Brazil get vaccinated against typhoid before travelling, and take precautions such as only drinking bottled water.

Whether you will need any of the vaccines in this section depends on the region you're travelling to, the activities you have planned and your medical history.

Rabies is a viral infection that spreads when infected animal saliva gets into an open wound, most commonly through a bite or scratch, but can also spread if saliva gets into the eye, nose, or mouth. If you are travelling to Brazil, there is a higher risk of catching rabies as there have been reports of domestic infected with the rabies virus. Wild animals in Brazil, such as dogs and bats, can also carry and spread the rabies virus.

Yellow fever is a viral infection that spreads through mosquito bites. Yellow fever is often mild, but in severe cases can cause internal bleeding and organ failure. The yellow fever vaccine is recommended for travellers going to most of Brazil, including the states of Acre, Amapá, Amazonas, Distrito Federal, Espirito Santo, Goiás, Maranhaõ, Mato Grosso, Mato Grosso do Sul, Minas Gerais, Pará, Paraná, Piaui, Rio de Janeiro, Rio Grande do Sul, Rondônia, Roraima, Santa Catarina, São Paulo, and Tocantins. Areas with yellow fever risk can change and there are several factors to consider before getting the vaccine, including your medical history, so we recommend you talk about this with the nurse or pharmacist at your appointment.

Tuberculosis is a bacterial infection that can spread through prolonged close contact with someone who is infected, most commonly by inhaling tiny infected droplets that are expelled when coughing or sneezing. There is a high risk of catching tuberculosis in Brazil, as there are more than 40 cases of tuberculosis for every 100,000 people.

Why do I need a consultation?

It is difficult to say which vaccines you need without asking a medical professional. Your itinerary, your medical history and the activities you have planned all affect which vaccinations you need. It is important that a trained travel nurse or pharmacist checks what you need.

Exactly the travel vaccinations you need - no more, no less.

During your consultation, our nurse or pharmacist will talk you through the health risks at your travel destinations to check which vaccines you need. If a vaccine is not essential, we will explain your options so you can decide whether you would like to have it.

Malaria

Malaria is a serious and sometimes fatal disease transmitted by mosquitoes. You cannot be vaccinated against malaria.

Malaria Precautions

There is a low risk of malaria in the Amazon basin of Brazil, so insect bite avoidance is recommended. In exceptional circumstances anti-malarials may be recommended for travellers to low risk areas - talk to our nurse or pharmacist about whether this applies to you.

There is a very low risk of malaria in the rest of Brazil, so anti-malaria tablets are not recommended for travel there. However, you should still practice insect bite avoidance such as using insect repellent with 20% DEET or higher and sleeping under mosquito nets to reduce the chance of being bitten.
