Health Precautions

Obligatory Vaccination and Other Recommendations
It is recommended that everyone 16 years of age and older should get fully vaccinated for COVID-19 before travel and present, if necessary, evidence of COVID-19 vaccination at the border. The updated information on all health entry requirements as well as on routine and recommended vaccines for Morocco are provided on the dedicated pages on TravelHealthPro and CDC websites.
A certificate of vaccination against polio is required for all travelers from poliomyelitis-affected countries. The following vaccines are strongly recommended: tetanus, diphtheria, rabies, typhoid fever, chickenpox, influenza, measles, hepatitis A and B and poliomyelitis. The risk of malaria (exclusively in the benign form of P. vivax) is limited from May to October in certain rural areas of the following provinces: Al Hoceima, Chefchaouen, Khouribga and Taounate. However, other insect-born illnesses, such as typhus, are common as well — for instance, the fresh water parasite schistosomiasis. Therefore, disease prevention is recommended. Always use insect repellent and wear long, loose-fitting clothing to prevent insect bites. To protect oneself against traveler's diarrhea (tourista), it is recommended to avoid foods which are more at risk. This includes pre-cooked dishes and cold soups, seafood, meats, undercooked fish, raw vegetables as well as unpeeled fruits. Drinking water must be boiled, filtered or consumed in sealed bottles. Decontaminating tablets (Hydroclonazone, Micropur) are partially effective. Drinking water is supplied in all the big cities and in certain villages, but it is recommended to drink mineral water. Wash fruits and vegetables carefully, consume meat that is well-cooked and avoid bathing in the wadis and dams.
