Are vaccinations required for a visit to Uganda?

With Uganda being located within the tropical altitude, it’s advisable you take malaria prevention medications, as well as vaccination against yellow fever which is mandatory. Immunizations against DTP (Diphtheria, Tetanus and Polio) and Hepatitis A are recommended too, and this is required before you enter Uganda. Besides vaccination you are advised to bring insect repellent, for emergency carry a mosquito net in your bag, though there are mosquito nets in most hotels and lodges across the country.
