Although you may be advised that some vaccinations are needed for travel to Colombia, yellow-fever vaccination is not obligatory for travel to this region and the disease is very rare here. Hepatitis A and typhoid are a small danger.
YOU ARE PERSONALLY RESPONSIBLE FOR THE DECISION ON WHICH VACCINATIONS TO RECEIVE.
Here are the suggested vaccines you would need from the Center for Disease
Remember that the CDC follows the conventional medical paradigm, and is deeply embedded in the pharmaceutical industry, which is very much out of alignment with the healing model promoted at the retreat. The side effects of the vaccines are varied and sometimes very unpleasant.
If you decide to take anti-malaria medication, we strongly advise against using Lariam (Mefloquine) due to the potential effects on mental health. Doxycycline is also not recommended as a malaria preventative in conjunction with ayahuasca. Note that some animalarial medications, such as Lariam, have been associated with neuropsychiatric effects including anxiety, hallucinations, depression, unusual behavior, and suicidal ideation, which could be particularly problematic if you are going to drink ayahuasca.
If you feel that you want to take pharmaceutical anti-malaria medication, Malarone shows no contraindications when taken in conjunction with ayahuasca. Please seek professional medical advice on preparations, including vaccinations, for the journey to Peru and keep us updated if you begin with any new medications.
