Is the Typhoid vaccination neccesary?

almost 5 years ago about Peru

I am travelling only to Lima, Cuzco, Ollantaytambo, and Machu Picchu. How common is typhoid in this region, and is the vaccination worth the $81 my doctor charges?

    $81 is a lot cheaper than what Typhoid will do to you! This is one vaccine I detest getting, but it's also not exactly a minor disease. Anywhere where you have dodgy water sources there is a (small) risk of it. Risks in Peru are very small, but I'd have to say it's worth the effort and cost to have it.
