Yellow fever innoculation

I read on a post three years old that it is possible to get yf innoculations in the Jorge chavez airport. Is this still true? Is it still necessary to get the innoculation if going to Manu?

A quick search of the forum indicates that as recently as this summer, you can get the YF vax at the airport. Remember, however, it should be gotten at least ten days before possible exposure.

"Necessary" as in legally required? Or "Necessary" as in medically recommended?

YF jab is available at airport

not required will do you no good

unless you take it a minimum of 10-14 days

before your Manu journey

otherwise just use lots of repellant.
