Meningitis in Namibia

Jump to last reply

I am NOT trying to be alarmist, but there has been a meningitis outbreak in Namibia in Katutura, near Windhoek. There are 43 suspected cases, and the government has insitituted a vaccination campaign. If you are headed in that direction soon, you may simply want to ask your doctor IF he recommends that you get the meningitis vaccine before going. If you're not going right away (and note that the vaccine IS expensive) then you may want to monitor the situation before deciding. Don't panic and cancel your trip, just ask your doctor what he recommends!
