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 Mexico are provided on the dedicated pages on TravelHealthPro and CDC websites.
While there are no official requirements for vaccination, the following are strongly recommended: tetanus, diphtheria, rabies, typhoid fever, chickenpox, influenza, hepatitis A and B, measles and poliomyelitis. The geographical altitude and air pollution in the Mexico City area may present a risk to some visitors. It has been advised not to drink tap water or products made with tap water (ice creams, sherbets, ice cubes, etc…). Some tourists may experience gastrointestinal distress upon consuming high risk foods, including reheated meals, seafood and fish, undercooked meats, raw vegetables and unpeeled fruits.
