Vaccination before the trip to South Africa

Before the trip to South Africa, you should have protection against hepatitis A, tetanus / diphtheria (basic protection) and possibly against cholera / tourist diarrhea.

If you stay in South Africa for 3 weeks or more or if you have an increased risk behavior, you should also have protection against hepatitis B and typhoid. Malaria prophylaxis may also be relevant if you visit the areas where such risks of infection exist.

Keep in mind that vaccination prescriptions are always tailored to your individual needs. At our drop-in clinics, we make it easy for you, in consultation with our specialized staff, to ensure that you receive full protection before your trip to South Africa. If you start your vaccinations at least one month before the trip, you do not have to forgo any protection due to lack of time. You can never get vaccinated too early.

If you want to know more or get vaccinated before the trip to South Africa, you are welcome to one of our drop-in clinics. Feel free to bring information about previous vaccinations.

Vaccination South Africa for children

Children naturally need the same good vaccination protection as adults, as they are exposed to the same risk of infection during their stay in South Africa.

Detailed and personal advice can only be given at the clinic. General advice will be very comprehensive so that nothing is forgotten. Knowledge of local disease incidence must be put in relation to the traveler’s risk-taking, length and character of the trip, previous protection, individual possible chronic diseases, allergies, etc. Medical prescriptions may thus differ from case to case.
