It is recommended that any vaccinations be administered at least 1 to 2 weeks before travel, though travellers can also arrange to receive their optional vaccinations immediately after arrival in East Africa to reduce costs.
Other protective measures for travellers to East Africa include bringing appropriate malaria prophylactic drugs (which should be commenced at time of departure to an endemic area outside Nairobi) and miscellaneous antiseptics, insect repellents etc.
