Vaccines and Medicines
You should be up to date on routine vaccinations while traveling to any destination. Some vaccines may also be required for travel.
Get travel vaccines and medicines because there is a risk of these diseases in the country you are visiting.
Ask your doctor what vaccines and medicines you need based on where you are going, how long you are staying, what you will be doing, and if you are traveling from a country other than the US.
Health recommendation: Yellow fever is a risk in certain parts of Kenya, so CDC recommends the yellow fever vaccine for travelers 9 months of age or older to these areas.
For more information on recommendations and requirements, see yellow fever recommendations and requirements for Kenya. Your doctor can help you decide if this vaccine is right for you based on your travel plans.
