Vaccines to travel

Morocco is one of the African countries with the lowest health risks. A good example is that the World Health Organization (WHO) does not suggest undergoing vaccinations to travel to Morocco. But so that you come with more peace of mind, in the following lines we give you some advice related to health and medical care present in the country.

Healthcare and medical insurance in Morocco

consejos01 1
Although it is a country with a low health risk, medical treatment in the country can be expensive. In all cities you can find health centers and private clinics. And if someone in your group gets sick or has an accident that requires hospitalization, it is advisable to contact the embassy or a consulate.

On the other hand, most private clinics have agreements with large insurers. With which, contracting travel insurance for Morocco can be a very interesting option to avoid possible headaches. In fact, we highly recommend it to our visitors before they arrive. Such insurance not only covers medical emergencies, including evacuation costs, but is also protection against lost luggage, missed transportation, and trip cancellation, among other items.

Families who wish to take out travel insurance to Morocco will find joint policies. This is an interesting decision due to the high investment in the trip and the higher risk of illness for any person in the group. This could cause the trip to be canceled and in the absence of insurance, all the money invested would be lost.

Travel to Morocco: advice related to health

  • Do not drink soft drinks from street stalls, many of these stalls do not have a water supply to wash and disinfect the glasses where the soft drinks are served.
  • Drink only bottled water, as tap water can upset your stomach.
  • Avoid ice: the origin of the water is unknown, so it may not be drinkable or may come from the tap, with the consequent risk of stomach damage.
  • Avoid raw vegetables.
  • If you have to drink from a river, well or natural source, it is best to collect it in a bottle and add a purification tablet.
  • In rocky or arid areas, be careful with scorpion stings and animal bites: this is very rare but prevention is always good.

What medications should I take?


If you are going to travel to Morocco, other tips to keep in mind are those related to medicines and pharmacies. Carrying a small first aid kit with the basics is always recommended in case you have any setbacks during your stay. In it you can put some antibiotics and alcohol, as well as aspirin and antidiarrheals.

It is also advisable to bring sunscreen and medication for insect bites. In Morocco it is easy to find a pharmacy, but its price is generally high. In addition, they are often called differently, since they mostly come from French laboratories, which can create some confusion.

Vaccines to travel to Morocco

No vaccinations are needed to travel to Morocco since it is not a risk country. Not even for yellow fever: there is no prior vaccination requirement by local health authorities, nor is there an explicit recommendation from the WHO. However, if you want to travel safely, some vaccines that may be recommended are the following:

  • Typhoid Fevers
  • Hepatitis A
  • Hepatitis B
  • Tetanos-Difteria
