What Vaccinations Do I Need For Morocco?

When people ask us which Vaccinations do I need for Morocco? 

Our advice is always the same – 

3-4 months before your trip, go and see your GP or visit a travel clinic, tell them where you are going and what you are doing and they will give you the most up to date advice.

We are hearing that GP’s are reducing the travel vaccination clinics within their surgery’s as they are so busy, so do check with yours. You may be better off visiting a local travel clinic or pharmacy that offers a travel vaccination service.

You can also check on the government’s ‘Know Before You Go’ website for the most up to date advice.

The current information from the website is as follows (October 2022)

Schistosomiasis in Morocco

There is a risk of Schistosomiasis in Morocco. A parasitic infection (also known as bilharzia), Schistosomiasis is transmitted to humans through contact with fresh water, when the parasitic worm enters through the skin. Usually, no symptoms are felt until 2-4 weeks after exposure, when fever, diarrhoea, cough or a rash can occur as the parasites move around the body. Long term disease can lead to damage of the bladder, kidneys, bowel, liver and genital tract. Prevention is dependent on avoidance of swimming, bathing or paddling in freshwater lakes and streams.
