The following vaccinations are recommended by the US Center for Disease Control (CDC) for travelers to Tanzania:

  • Routine vaccinations updated, including MMR (measles, mumps, rubella), DPT diphtheria, pertussis, tetanus), poliovirus
  • Yellow Fever
  • Hepatitis A and B
  • Typhoid
  • Rabies (if you will come in contact with animals)

You should consult with a physician (preferably one who specializes in travel medicine) to determine which ones are appropriate for you. Be sure to do this several months before leaving as some of the vaccinations may require multiple shots over a period of time for maximum effectiveness.

Proof of yellow fever vaccination is required to enter Tanzania from another country where yellow fever is a risk. This includes entering Tanzania from Kenya.
