Earthquake in Ecuador

There was a large earthquake (7.8) tonight near Cojimies (between Mompiche and Pedernales). It was shallow and it was felt right through the country. It was 6.4 in Quito, but no major damage was reported other than some power outages. Guyaquil was hit hard, there's a lot of damage reported, at least one overpass collapsed and so far one death officially. Manta has suffered too, the airport is closed, the control tower collapsed, 10 deaths reported in the city. Portoviejo too, with 18 deaths…

As there is a shortage of Yellow fever vaccine around the world how difficult to enter Bolivia without the yellow fever stamp by bus from Peru? Or could we get the vaccine at the airport in Lima? I have read that it was possible.
Please enlighten me on the matter. Thank you.

I hadn't bought a ticket for macchu pichu so took the opportunity when I connected through cusco to Puno to buy from the agent in the baggage claim at the airport - I would advise nobody to do this and wait until you get to the city - all agents charge extra that's what you pay for convenience but the airport agent charged by 80 for a 57 entry fee but even worse told me the bus was 24 each way so charging me double - so I would avoid using them for anything

I will be flying from Guayquil, Ecuador via Santiago to Easter Island and everyone talks about bringing food with you including the LP guide book but no one says what is allowed! I don't want to carry and then be forced to throw it all away. I will be there six days with my family.

Hi

Do I need to book internal flights (specifically VivaColombia) well in advance or is it enough to book them 2 to 5 days before departure? Do the prices become more expensive the later you leave it or do they stay the same or even come down?
I would like to know so I can make my traveling in Colombia a little more flexible instead of sticking to a rigid plan.
I will be traveling in August and September with routes: Bogota-Medellin, Medellin-Santa Marta, Cartegana-San Andres, San Andres-Bogota.
