Have you at any time felt like a human pin cushion? I have, just right before I left to be part of the U.S. Peace Corps in Namibia, Africa. I acquired pricked and pinned with numerous advisable inoculations all ahead of boarding the plane. Ironic really, as Namibia is one particular of the most secure of all the African nations. The point the state is smashed among two of the world’s oldest deserts, the Kalahari and Namib, will not permit tropical condition to flourish like in other Sub-Saharan areas.

So what inoculations are advised when touring to Namibia?

No vaccinations are needed, nevertheless, it is recommended to update program vaccinations this sort of as measles/mumps/rubella (MMR), diphtheria/pertussis/tetanus (DPT), and poliovirus.

Hepatitis A & B, Typhoid, and Rabies are highly suggested.

Malaria is prolific across the northern regions of Namibia and antimalarial prescription drugs are highly recommended when traveling to these parts.

It is proposed you check with with your well being-care supplier at the very least 4-6 months just before your scheduled departure to allow time for your vaccinations to consider influence and to get started getting your malaria prophylaxis.

The Govt of Namibia calls for travelers arriving from nations the place yellow fever is current to present proof of their yellow fever vaccination.  Yellow fever is not a danger in Namibia.

Greatest advice. Check with your GP or healthcare adviser and do get a Yellow Fever vaccination if touring around Africa ahead of viewing Namibia or they will not allow you in!

Namibia can make for a choice vacation spot, simply because of the constrained malarial locations, for families traveling with children.
