Vaccination is not required to enter Brazil.
Curitiba is not in the outbreak area, but it's recommended to take a vaccine against yellow fever.
The United Kingdom’s National Health Service advises to:
- Confirm primary courses and boosters are up to date as recommended for life in Britain (seasonal flu vaccine, MMR, vaccines required for occupational risk of exposure, lifestyle risks and underlying medical conditions).
- Take courses or boosters for diphtheria, hepatitis A, tetanus.
- Also consider vaccines against rabies and typhoid.
Please also make sure you’re informed about malaria and risks associated with it. Curitiba is in the low risk area, so antimalarial tablets are not usually advised, but precautions are essential.
