In Provinces
It is also possible to be vaccinated at your arrival to the airports of Iquitos and Puerto Maldonado.

Note:
Depending on the time that you estimate to be interned in the jungle, if this time will be long consult with your doctor the possibility to be vaccinated against the hepatitis, typhoid, tetanus and an anti malaria treatment.

You may need certain vaccinations before traveling to Peru:

(1) Routine: it is recommended to be up-to-date in routine shots.

(2) Hepatitis A: you may be exposed through contaminated food or water. It is rather common in Peru, compared to developed countries.

(3) Hepatitis B: you may be exposed through blood, body fluids or sexual contact with ill people, even if they seem healthy.

(4) Typhoid: also, through contaminated food or water, but happens less frequently.

(5) Yellow fever: highly recommended if traveling to jungle areas (especially if going to any area in Madre de Dios, San Martín, Loreto, Amazonas, Ucayali). You could be requested to show a vaccination certificate upon arrival to Puerto Maldonado. In 2007 there were 22 deaths caused by yellow fever in the entire country (outside link)

You should receive the yellow fever shot 10 days prior your arrival to Peru, and every 10 years if you continue traveling to risk areas. If you did not take it in your country, you may have the shot at the Jorge Chavez International Airport, the Dos de Mayo Hospital, and most private hospitals or laboratory such as Lab Roe for an approximate cost of $ 20 USD.

(6) Malaria: currently, there is no available vaccine for this illness, but you should consider receiving prophylaxis, in addition to standard measures of precaution such as using insect repellent, using bednets while you sleep and wearing long-sleeved pants and shirts. This preventative measures will also help in avoiding getting dengue fever (there is no prophylaxis or vaccination for dengue fever, also known as breakbone fever).

A consultation with a travel medicine specialist is always recommended before your trip. For more information, please read: http://wwwnc.cdc.gov/travel/destinations/peru.htm#vaccines
