I'm going to Kenya and Tanzania in Feb.--my health maintenance org. gave me a polio booster, hepatitis A, cholera and yellow fever. A second hepatitis A shot is required 6 months after the 1st, but you can travel in between. Also, a prescription for malaria medication is required and is begun 1 week prior to travel and 1 weekly while away and for 2 to 4 weeks upon return.

The advice on what shots are needed changes from time to time so it's always worth getting the latest info from your doctor.

Make sure the list he/ she is referring to is a recent copy - doctors in UK CAN get updates once a month but don't always get them.

By all means access the CDC website and select Kenya. Also, you can for $25 purchase expert, written medical advice on Kenya from Kaiser-Permanente in DC ... ciao.
