3+1 for what David writes, as it depends what vaccinations you already have, when boosters are needed, etc. Your doctor is the best source of information.
Essential: Tetanus and polio
Strong recommendation: Hepatitis A
Recommended: Typhoid, Diptheria, TB, Hepatitis B, Rabies
The vaccinations are only suggested, not mandatory (you won't be turned away if you don't have them). They are similar to those needed for other countries, so if you plan to travel a lot it's a good idea, though I've never felt the need to have an anti-rabies injection.
Some of these injections can be combined, e.g. Hep-A/Typhoid, Diptheria/Tetanus/Polio.
You would need a booster for Hep-A six months down the line. Then a typhoid revaccination after three years, the others after ten years.
Malaria is practically eliminated, but avoid mosquito and other bites by using cream/sprays.
The only time I visited Morocco when vaccinations were mandatory was in the 1970s when there was an outbreak of Yellow Fever however the WHO (World Health Organisation) were injecting everyone as they arrived.
