Vaccinations

Recommended for all travellers

The vaccines in this section are recommended for all travellers visiting the country.

Many people in Mexico are immune to hepatitis A. This is because the illness is so common in Mexico that 90% of all 11-15 year old have had it in the past (according to data from 2000). Travellers from countries such as the UK, where the hepatitis A risk is very low, can get very ill when exposed to the virus. This is why the vaccine is important for travellers going to Mexico.

Due to widespread vaccination of household pets, the number of reported rabies cases in dogs in Mexico has been on the decline since the 1990s. However, the disease continues to affect stray animals and pets which have not been vaccinated. If you are likely to come in contact with animals during your time in Mexico, you should consider the rabies vaccine. The same applies if you are going to spend time in remote areas, without easy access to medical facilities.

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

Mexico is a risk area for malaria. The risk is classed as low but it is important that you protect yourself by taking malaria tablets if you are travelling to Chihuahua, Chiapas, Durango, Nayarit, Oaxaca or Sinaloa. Lariam, Malarone and Doxycycline are all effective in preventing malaria in these regions.

The malaria risk in the states of Jalisco, Quintana Roo, Sonora, and Tabasco is classed as very low. This means, that you should take precautions to avoid mosquito bites but you don’t need to take malaria tablets. There is no risk of malaria along the US - Mexico border.
