2015 – Immunisations & Health Requirements

You will need to contact your GP Practice around March 2015 to let them know that you are travelling to Kenya and Tanzania. They will normally provide you with a form to complete, and will then advise you as to which immunisations you will need.

The Yellow Fever immunisation is compulsory, and you will be advised where you can go to get this particular immunisation. There will be a cost, and you must take the certificate you are given with you when we travel to East Africa. Normally, there are no charges for any other immunisations that you need.

Your GP Practice will offer advice on which anti-malaria tablets you should buy. They may also want to charge your for a private prescription – please be aware that places such as Morrisons, Teesside Park, not only sell anti-malaria tablets at very competitive prices (they will give you 20% discount on your anti-malaria tablets if you tell them you are on our trip), but they also provide a free prescription service.
