Typhoid fever is a bacterial infection that spreads through contaminated food and water, and is recommended for all travellers to Peru. As the tap water is not safe to drink in Peru, it is recommended that all travellers drink bottled water only, and be cautious when eating food as it may be washed in contaminated 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.

Hepatitis B is a serious liver infection caused by the hepatitis B virus, which spreads through contact with contaminated blood and bodily fluids. There is a higher risk of hepatitis B in Peru as more than 2% of the population are chronically infected, so the hepatitis B vaccine is recommended for some travellers.

Rabies is a viral infection that is spread through contact with infected animal saliva, which is usually transmitted through bites and scratches. Rabies can also spread if an animal licks an open wound, or if saliva gets into the eye, nose, or mouth. If you are travelling to rural areas in Peru, or will be involved in outdoor activities that put you at risk of animal bites or scratches, then there is a risk of rabies. Cases of rabies have been reported in both domestic and wild animals in Peru, so it is important to be aware of the risks when interacting with any animal.

Yellow fever is a viral infection that is spread through mosquito bites, similarly to malaria. Yellow fever usually causes mild flu-like symptoms, but in some severe cases can cause deadly complications such as organ failure and internal bleeding.

The yellow fever vaccine is recommended for those travelling to certain regions of Peru that are at an elevation below 2300m, including Amazonas, Loreto, Madre de Dios, San Martin and Ucayali, Puno, Cusco, Junín, Pasco, and Huánuco.

The yellow vaccine is typically not recommended for travellers who are not travelling to regions west of the Andes.

The yellow fever vaccine is not recommended for travellers who are only going to areas above 2300m altitude, Machu Picchu, the Inca Trail, and the cities of Cuzco, Puno, and Lima.

Be aware that areas with yellow fever risk can change and there are several factors to consider before getting the vaccine, including your medical history - we advise 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. Tuberculosis is endemic to Peru, as there are more than 40 confirmed cases of tuberculosis for every 100,000 people. This means that there is a higher risk of catching tuberculosis if you are travelling to Peru without getting vaccinated.

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 low-to-no risk of malaria in Peru, so anti-malarial tablets are not typically recommended for travellers. Travellers still need to be aware of the risk of malaria, and should practise insect bite avoidance such as insect repellent with a minimum of 20% DEET. In exceptional circumstances anti-malarials may be advised for some travellers to low risk areas - if you think you could be at higher risk, talk to one of in-store nurses or pharmacists.
