Influenza Epidemic in Cusco?

by ElGordito Online Now Aug 19, 2004 at 9:37 PM

Hello. I have read on another forum (saexplorers.org) that, earlier this year, there was a flu epidemic in "Cusco" (I'm not sure whether this refers to the city or department of Cusco). Apparently, some 30,000 people contracted the virus. Can anyone confirm or deny this report? Also, are flu vaccinations available in Peru? I'm thinking that it might be difficult to receive the shot here in the U.S. before my trip to Cusco in early Sept. Thanks very much for your help!
