Is anyone aware of inoculations required to travel to Brazil, Argentina or Paraguay?
Leaving for vacation next week, and it just occured to me I may need some vaccinations. Any input?
Yellow Fever - and get a certificate which is valid for 10 years.
It's only required for some regions but technically if you've traveled to Brazil some other countries may require evidence of the inoculation - but I've never been required to show the certificate in either Brazil, Paraguay or any other country.
Thats what I thought... thanks for your imput!
You know, I've traveled in and around SOuth America for years, never had any specific shots nor was required to show evidence of them. You will certainly be fine without so don't stress about getting them. In addition shots only become active after your anitbodies have fully developed so if yo'ure leaving next week, a shot now won't do you any good for weeks to come yet.
As Ali and Travelita said I also did not have to show the certificate in Brazil and Argentina. However, just for information when we crossed the border from Brazil to Venezuela, we had to show our Yellow Fewer Certificates. If you are not able to show it, you have to get a shot there and then at the border.
