Larry. Not surprised that there are differences of opinion between physicians and also with the CDC recommendations. We went to a Travel Clinic that is part of an Infectious Disease Practice to get their guidance before traveling to S. Africa and Zimbabwe. Good luck getting it sorted out and have a great trip. This trip is on our list.
thank you for the reply. the dr's i spoke with both internists with infectious disease specialties. since they cant agree, i thought i'd ask what medicine (pills, shots,etc)people have taken that have been on this trip prior.
And, when you have decided on which of the esoteric inoculations and medications to take, throw in some good old cold and respitory medications! While on both our Africa and India trips we had no gastric problems, but a virulent respitory/ cold thing ran through the groups! On both trips the “ cold” arrived with a fellow traveler and managed to affect almost everyone in the group to some degree.
