Help! Getting a yellow fever shot and certificate in Lima!

Postby MrPolyglot » Thu Mar 03, 2011 1:40 pm

I have been in Lima for over 90 days and now I need to go to brazil as soon as possible (for a few days).

Is there a number of days I have to wait in Lima after getting the shot??

Will they give me the YF vaccination certificate during the same day?

Finally, which place would you recommend in Lima (for getting the shots)??

Thanks! :)

You can get shots done at a Suizalab or blufstein. They are walk in type places really quick and easy....

I went to Clinica Roe: http://www.labroe.com/

Took about 10 minutes, got a nice yellow card / certificate. It cost about S/.90. It must be greater than 10 days before your trip or Brazil will not honor it.

You can even get the yellow fever shot at the Lima airport in the medical clinic by the domestic arrivals, though I don't recommend waiting until the day you fly to do this.

Take note you need to wait 10 days before it is actually in your system and airlines may actually deny boarding if it's done less then 10 days prior. I have seen them do it.

Looks like you can get free Yellow Fever shots on Wednesday mornings.

I got mine today at Clinica Limatambo on the corner of Panama and Aramburu - S/.86.51 and it took about 15 minutes, no appointment required.

Thanks everyone for the inoculation advice. I will be travelling to Puerto Maldonado with my parents at the end of this month (April). Should I get any other shots besides Yellow Fever?
