What vaccinations will I need for Ghana?
In Africa, malaria is the major problem; volunteers are highly encouraged to get a malaria vaccine before leaving for Ghana. Dream Africa Care Foundation suggests that you consult a travel doctor from your country before you depart. Volunteers are recommended to immunize for Hepatitis A, B, Typhoid and polio (NOTE: Some vaccinations are needed as much as 1-2 months before arrival in Ghana).
