With all the planning excitement, it's easy to take your ‘eye off the ball ‘ when planning your jabs for Morocco. Don’t worry, come and chat to us and we'll guide you on the recommended vaccines needed for Morocco. As always we recommend that you should be up to date with your childhood immunisation schedule. This means you should have had at least two MMR vaccinations in your life, and a tetanus jab in the last ten years. So, are there any other vaccines needed for Morocco? You can get typhoid and hepatitis A infection through contaminated food and water and both are a risk in Morocco. So we would also recommend these core travel jabs for Morocco at least two weeks before you travel. If you’re a longer stay traveller or visiting family and friends, you’ll need to consider other risks, such as Hepatitis B. This is common in Morocco but you can easily protect yourself with a safe and simple hepatitis B vaccine. Please be aware that rabies exists in both domestic and wild animals in the country, even in big cities like Marrakesh.You should therefore consider rabies vaccination if you’re at increased risk. You might be at increased risk if you’re a hiker, trekker, cyclist, runner, young child, long stay traveller or if you’re visiting remote areas. If you’re still not sure about which inoculations for Morocco might be right for you, we’re here to help. Just give us a call and we'll do our best to guide you. To give you an idea of the vaccines needed for Morocco, you may wish to take a look at our summary guide below.

What are the recommended jabs for Morocco?

  • Do remember, the travel vaccinations you’ll need for Morocco will depend on: 

    • which areas you will be visiting

    • and on your individual risk assessment

Who will be providing your travel injections for Morocco?

"Although your jabs for Morocco are important, not everything can be prevented by vaccination. If you intend to climb in the Atlas mountains, please be aware that you’re at risk of altitude sickness, especially at altitudes above 2500 metres. This is particularly relevant for Morocco’s tallest peak, Mount Toubkal (4,167 metres).


Health Klinix can advise you on reducing your risk and supply altitude sickness tablets if needed."

How it works
Frequently asked questions
  • This depends on which vaccinations you have. Hepatitis A will last for 25 years after the initial two doses but typhoid will only last 3 years

  • Ideally at least 4 - 6 weeks as some of the vaccinations need to be scheduled over one month. It also takes time for your body to produce protective antibodies before you travel. If you’re contacting us at the last minute, don't worry as we can still help you out.

  • Most of the vaccinations for Morocco are well tolerated. Hepatitis A can occasionally give you a headache and with typhoid you may have fever or muscle aches but these usually subside after a day or two.

  • Most inactive vaccines can be given in pregnancy as long as it can be justified. Please ask us for a specialist consultation.

  • Children can have most of the vaccines but often at lower doses. There are, however, age restrictions on some vaccines.

  • If you have underlying medical health problems then it will be even more important that you’re fully vaccinated, but depending on the underlying condition some vaccines may not be appropriate for you. You’ll need a careful risk assessment first to decide what’s right for your own individual circumstances.

  • You are not at risk of malaria in Morocco and we wouldn’t usually recommend malaria tablets. For specialist travel health advice contact the team.

  • You’re not at risk of yellow fever in Morocco and the good news is that there are also no yellow vaccine certificate requirements.

Morocco’s culture, architecture and its people are a fusion of its Berber, Arabic and European influences. The most popular destination is Marrakesh, where you can visit the fascinating Djemaa el Fna Square, as well as its winding souks (marketplace) This is where you can also have a go at testing your bartering skills for leather goods, jewellery, ceramics, lamps, etc. Morocco also boasts other jewels, such as its cultural capital, Fes, famous for its walled medina and home to the 9th century Al Karaouine mosque and university. If you wish to get away from the hustle and bustle of Morocco’s busy cities, just head to the beautiful Atlas mountains; Marrakesh is an ideal base for this. And if you’re feeling adventurous, why not have a go at conquering the highest peak in Morocco, Mount Toubkal, at 4,167 metres? Whatever you do, it's important to make sure you’re travelling safely and so we recommend contacting us for advice on vaccines needed for Morocco before your trip.
