Vaccinations Ecuador Amazon

Postby g_traveller_8e53a537 » Tue Oct 10, 2017 9:27 am

Hello, I am travelling into the Ecuador Amazon with my 12 year old son. I want to find out what vaccinations are absolutely essential - I went to a travel clinic and they were suggesting vaccines for almost every possibly disease which doesn't seem realistic and seemed almost like a money making proposition.

Based on travellers who have been there recently, I am looking for any thoughtful advice on this topic. The one I am unsure of is yellow fever. I think for the rest like cholera, typhoid, etc we can manage with precautions but just not sure if it may be worthwhile to take yellow fever vaccine especially because I am travelling with a younger traveller.

Appreciate your advice

I don't know about Ecuador, but when I went to Peru, the yellow fever vaccine was a requirement...and sometimes if you're travelling to somewhere else (or home) from a country with a risk of yellow fever, you're required to show proof before they let you in.

I haven't been everywhere, but it's on my list
