Yellow fever vaccination for trip to southern Africa

Jump to last reply

We will be arriving at LVI in Zambia and immediately transferring to Zimbabwe. Our time in Zambia will be obviously very short.

We will go to a travel clinic here for the necessary medications and vaccinations but not until August.

In the meantime, I have done research online [CDC website] and it seems that Zambia is the only country that we will visit that has Yellow Fever risk. [along with the 2 mentioned, we will also be in South Africa and Botswana].

We aren't opposed to getting the vaccination, however in doing this research, albeit not a very comprehensive one, it has come to light that the CDC does not recommend a Yellow Fever vaccination for those over 60, which we both are -- so my concern is this-- will we have difficulties crossing borders without this vaccination?

We are going in this direction -- South Africa-> Zambia -> Zimbabwe -> Botswana [Chobe] -> South Africa.

Has anyone had similar situation??

Thanks~
