    My wife got this vaccination at Sanitorio No. 2, which is immediately behind ISSTE on Av Kabah.

    As I recall it cost about 800 pesos.

    The vaccine had to be specially requested so the process took a couple of days.

    Be sure to require that you be given a certificate of vaccination.

    I just saw this thread and thought I would add to it. I just got a Yellow Fever vaccine (Stamaril) and a Typhoid vaccine (Typhim Vi) in Cancun. En Espanol, this is "Immunicion Fiebre Amarillo" and "Immunicion Tifoidea".

    I visited a private hospital that sent me to Hospital General, but they didn't have it either. They said that these immunizations are only done at a private facility by appointment. They got in contact with an authorized private "vaccinator" (doctor or chemist, not sure). I arranged it same day, she met me at Clinica Morelos on Av. Comalcalco (taxis will know it)

    Provider met me at the clinic, and gave me the shots and gave me documentation. She also said I needed to go to some government office to "register" that I had the vaccine, but I didn't quite understand this. Cost was 1000 pesos for the yellow fever shot and approx 650 pesos for the typhoid shot. Cash only.

    If you want this, best to get in touch with the provider directly. Her English is very basic, so best to have a Spanish-speaking person arrange it:

    Contact is:
