For AMOR Projects records, we need to keep in our files a copy of your immunizations for reference. If you have not given us that information, we will need to receive it before you serve with us. Usually, we recommend you wait for about 6 weeks before your trip to meet with your doctor and conduct a travel consultation. You can also check the CDC (Center for Disease Control) web site link for the latest recommendations on vaccines (you will be serving in the Ucayali region of Peru).
