Africa is the world’s second largest and second most-populous continent consisting of 54 countries. It is also a continent where extra care is required due to the number of communicable diseases. Including a trip to your Travel Health Doctor before travelling to Africa is essential to help protect your health while you are away and increase the chances of coming home healthy.
Some African countries won’t let you enter without the required vaccinations. The most common vaccination required on entry to African countries is Yellow Fever Vaccination. A Yellow Fever vaccination is compulsory if you are returning to Australia from Uganda and a vaccination certificate from an approved travel vaccination clinic. We are an Accredited Yellow Fever Vaccination Centre and can provide you with the essential certification for your passport.
