Good morning,

Does anyone know what vaccinations are actually required when travelling to Ghana and which are more suggestions? I know that travelling right now is not possible with coronavirus, and perhaps there will be coronavirus vaccines soon too, but I’ve heard yellow fever vaccines are important. And what about taking anti-malarial pills?

I hope that everyone is well and safe during this time.

There are several recommended vaccines, but yellow fever is a must for travel to Ghana. Talk to your GP about potential health issues in Ghana and about taking the anti-malarial pills as it is important but can have side-effects. There are other precautions to take than vaccinations like using mosquito repellent. I’d suggest reading this page on Healthcare in Ghana, it gives info on public and private options, insurance, vaccines and medicine.

Take care,
