Hello,
Where are you going to receive innoculations for South Africa? Malaria, Hepatitis Yellow Fever? We will be making a stop at Cairo airport as well. I need comments and suggestions. Thank You

    Regardless where traveling, even if never leaving home adults should be current with Tetanus, HepA and Polio Booster. The first two you can as easily contract in a local park/even own backyard or restaurant and they're both good for 10/yrs; Polio will be good for your life.

    As to others, check the South African website under Health Requirements; also the CDC and WHO and compare what each indicate. The most important though is that from SA as often the CDC or WHO aren't always correct/current.

    Malaria is not an inoc, rather a choice of 3/tablet options each with different protocols; Hep A, your own doc can provide; where Yellow Fever (doubt you need for SA, though with that stop in Cairo might change this), is usually only available from specific Clinics, hospitals or those docs who have been approved to provide.

    Then discuss with your personal physician and if anything required s/he can provide most; for anything exotic you should consider discussing with a Tropical Diseases Specialist, many are affiliated with hospitals.


    Good luck.
