Vaccinations needed for Peru

As Emily and Geoff are off on their travels in 6 and 7 weeks time I thought I had better check out what Vaccinations they both need.

These are the ones you are advised to get…image

Hepatitis A … a faecal/oral infection spread through contaminated food and water.

Tetanus…contracted through dirty cuts and scratches.

Typhoid…a systemic infection transmitted via faecal/oral route, most commonly through ingestion of contaminated food and water.

Yellow fever…spread through the bites of infected mosquitoes.

Geoff should also consider..

Diphtheria

Hepatitis B

Rabies.

All of these are needed at least 4 weeks before travel, and as far as I know the only one you have to pay for is the yellow fever.

My nurse was very helpful and also gave me 4 pages of information to read.

I am booked to get mine 13th May 🙂
