Zambia innoculations

To anyone or, of course, Rocconi - Are there any drugs I need to be injesting or injecting before my trip? Besides malarone, what should I be doing??? Only about 3 months away now....eeek!!! More questions forthcoming, I'm sure...

Thanks! Sharon

NOTHING.
Take malaria prophylactics and that is all you need.

Hee hee! Gotta love this board. We are none too short on opinions... and that is a good thing. For a trip to Turkey a few years back I got the Hep series, and I'm good on the others mentioned except typhoid - I didn't think we needed that. Were just being a bit more cautious, Dennis? As far as I am concerned the fewer drugs the better.

Yep - it is coming quickly now Dennis...I'm starteed to freak out about having everything I need!!!!! I just heard from Barry and I hope things turn around for your birthday but they haven't seen the dogs in a while...

Cheers all and thanks. Hopefully Rocco will weigh in at some point....

I just went with what the cdc and the travel doctor had in his reports. As much as I hate shots, I took their advice whether needed or not. Figured they know more than I did.

I've had all but Thyphoid. The Yellow Fever, Hep A are good for 10-years; polio booster for the remainder of your life. If you've had the above, you should be set along with the malarone.
