Yellow Fevor innoculation revisited

Jump to last reply

As most of you know, wife and I and another couple (friends) will be going on Safari to Kenya and Tanzania in July and I know that coming from Kenya to Tanzania requires a YF certificate.

The latest wrinkle is that my friend (65 +) went to his doctor today intending to get the YF shot which doc administers. His doc advised that he NOT get the shot because the doc, a few years ago, got the shot prior to going to Africa and he developed hepatitis from it. My friends doc said that he would write a letter stating something like due to age and health concerns he (doc) advises against shot.

Now, wife and I are in a quandary as to what to do. I am 71 (look and feel like 51) and wife is a few years younger and also in very good health. We both have antibodies for HEP A.

I just don't want to get there and with only a letter be hassled by the border authorities or worse, not be allowed into country.

Our thoughts continue to be that we will be getting the shot.

Your thoughts and comments always appreciated.
