Do i need any vaccinations for Botswana?

There is no formal requirement for any shots for entry into Botswana.

However, Botswana is a MALARIA area therefore we highly recommend that you do take precautions particularly in the Botswana summer months. Your physician will be able to assist you with a prescription for prophylaxis for malaria prior to your arrival in the malaria-infested area.

To maximize the benefit of inoculations/immunizations we suggest you see a health-care provider at least 4–6 weeks before your trip to allow time for your vaccines to take effect.

Tips on avoiding Malaria :
Take a prescription antimalarial drug.
Use insect repellent liberally and wear long pants and sleeves to prevent mosquito bites.

Please consult with your physician for recommendations regarding inoculations/immunizations.
