Vaccination Requirements


GWC suggests that you seek medical advice about vaccinations from your physician. Naturally, you are expected to get immunized against Yellow Fever, Malaria, Tetanus, Typhoid, Hepatitis A & B, particularly when you are about to travel out of your immediate vicinity. Kindly inform us at the starting of the program if you have any kind of allergy. This will enable us to prepare the most suitable setting for you based on your health condition. Please always put it at the back of your mind that GWC does not handle your health and comfort with levity.

In many parts of the world, malaria has been the major issue. This implies that you must take anti-malaria tablets as a matter of importance. Some of the medications you may carry along include primaquine, mefloquine, doxycycline, atovaquane/proguanil among others. You are strongly advised to adequately guard yourself against malarial attack prior to your travelling abroad for a visit.

You need to seek medical advice to be sure of the exact drug most appropriate for you. In addition, always use topical mosquito repellant and sleeping underits cover to avoid being bitten at all. If you are able to avoid mosquito bites, you are directly or indirectly preventing yourself against dengue fever, a different mosquito-borne illness which has no vaccine.

We therefore suggest that you come with:

  • Antibiotics as prescribed by your doctor
  • Sunscreen & Lip balm
  • Antiseptic & bandages
  • Insect repellant
  • Rehydration sachets
  • Nausea drugs
  • Anti-diarrhea
  • Cold & flu tables
  • Antihistamine to take care of allergies and itches
  • Pain reliever
  • Aspiring to combat pain or fever.
