Vaccinations & Shots

Yellow Fever

While the risk for yellow fever is low in the areas we visit in Kenya, the U.S. Dept of State advises that you should have proof of yellow fever immunizations, or you may be denied entry. According to our partners, the situation stems from some border officials asking for documentation while others do not. In effect, we highly suggest that you receive the yellow fever vaccination and carry proof of this with you to Kenya. Please consult your physician or local travel clinic for professional advice.

Malaria

Regarding malaria in Kenya, there is known to be malaria in the region. However, the risk is considered low. We recommend that you consult with your local travel clinic or physician for recommended inoculations and whether or not to take malaria prophylaxis for travel to Kenya. Your local travel clinic will have some recommendations specifically for you.

To find out the most current travel health information, we recommend that you contact the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (www.cdc.gov)
