|Apart from universal vaccinations (tetanus, polio, whooping cough, diphtheria, hepatitis B), no additional vaccination is required to visit Morocco.|
Some vaccines are nevertheless useful for the individual protection of the tourist. In the case of extended rural stays, it is strongly recommended to be vaccinated against rabies.
In order to avoid any intoxication or illness, it is recommended to :
Wash hands before eating
Wash and peel fruits and vegetables
Make sure that meat is well-cooked

In case of diarrhea containing mucus, pus, blood, or accompanied by a fever, it is strongly recommended to consult a doctor. For simple loose stools, you can use an antibiotic that slows down the intestinal transit. Moroccan pharmacies are often well-stocked and doctors are well trained.
In case of a medical emergency, please call the single national toll-free number “141”.
