THE FOLLOWING INFORMATION IS RECOMMENDED BY THE CDC. ALL TRAVELERS should be up to date on routine vaccinations while traveling to any
destination. Some vaccines may also be required for travel:
Routine Vaccines | Make sure you are up to date on routine vaccines before every trip. These vaccines include measles-mumps-rubella (MMR) vaccine, diphtheria-tetanus- pertussis vaccine, chickenpox vaccine, polio vaccine and your yearly flu shot.
Typhoid | You can get typhoid through contaminated food or water in South Africa. CDC recommends this vaccine for most travelers, especially if you are staying with friends or relatives, visiting smaller cities or rural areas, or if you are an adventurous eater.
SOME TRAVELERS should ask your doctor what vaccines and medicines you need based on our visit to Durban:
Hepatitis B | You can get hepatitis B through sexual contact, contaminated needles, and blood products, so CDC recommends this vaccine if you might get a tattoo or piercing, have any medical procedures, etc.
Malaria | When traveling in South Africa, you should avoid mosquito bites to prevent malaria. You may need to take prescription medicine before, during, and after your trip to prevent malaria, depending on your travel plans, such as where you are going, when you are traveling, and if you are spending a lot of time outdoors or sleeping outside. Talk to your doctor about how you can prevent malaria while traveling.
Rabies | Rabies can be found in dogs, bats, and other mammals in South Africa, so
CDC recommends this vaccine for the following groups:
● Travelers involved in outdoor and other activities (such as camping, hiking,
biking, adventure travel, and caving) that put them at risk for animal bites.
● People who will be working with or around animals (such as veterinarians,
wildlife professionals, and researchers).
● People who are taking long trips or moving to South Africa
● Children, because they tend to play with animals, might not report bites, and are
more likely to have animal bites on their head and neck.
