Do I need to take malaria pills or get certain vaccinations for my trip to Peru?

No vaccinations are officially required to enter Peru. That said, it’s a good idea to be up-to-date on typhoid and hepatitis A shots. If you'll be traveling in the Amazon jungle below 7,550 feet (2,300 m), you may want to get a yellow fever vacination. It's also a good idea to take malaria pills while in the Amazon.

Health conditions and vaccination recommendations do change, however, so it’s best to check with your doctor for current requirements before traveling.

For up-to-date information on the health conditions in Peru, please visit the CDC website.
