Vaccinations for Namibia

A yellow fever vaccination certificate is required for people visiting Namibia from countries with a risk of yellow fever transmission. It’s recommended that you get vaccinations for cholera, typhoid, tetanus, hepatitis A and B, and diphtheria. The rabies vaccination is recommended if you’re going to be staying in remote areas where you may not have medical access for an emergency vaccination, if you’re going for a particularly long trip, or if you’re going to have a higher risk of contact with animals and bats.

From November to June there is a high risk of malaria in the Ohangwena, Omaheke, Omusati, Oshana, Oshikoto and Otjozondjupa regions and a medium risk in northern Namibia, such as in Etosha National Park and the Zambezi Region. In all other areas there is a low to no risk of malaria throughout the year. It’s best to contact your doctor or travel clinic about malaria prophylactics before your trip. To prevent mosquito bites, use repellent on your skin and clothes, wear long trousers and shirts in the early morning and evenings and if possible, sleep under a mosquito net.
