Mali is a West African country with a rich cultural heritage and stunning natural beauty that is worth exploring. The country is home to several UNESCO World Heritage sites, including the ancient city of Timbuktu, the Djenné Mosque, and the Tomb of Askia. Visitors can also experience the vibrant music and dance scene, sample delicious local cuisine, and shop for unique handicrafts at local markets. Mali is also known for its diverse wildlife, with opportunities to see elephants, lions, and giraffes in national parks and reserves. However, travelers should be aware of safety concerns and check travel advisories before planning a trip to Mali.
Mali Immunization Recommendations and Requirements
Before traveling, make sure you are up-to-date on all of your routine immunizations including influenza and COVID-19. Note that many vaccines that are now considered "routine" were not available until recent decades so you may not have received them at all, depending on your age and other factors.
Infants, 6 to 11 months old should receive one dose of MMR and Hepatitis A prior to visiting Mali. This does not count toward routine childhood immunizations.
