You are wise to get the proper vaccinations before your trip to Kenya, as the risk for getting malaria is moderate in the country. You can also be highly susceptible to other diseases, as sanitation can be a problem in remote or undeveloped areas. Vaccinations are either required or recommended for travelers to Kenya.

The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and the World Health Organization (WHO) recommend that you get vaccinated for – hepatitis A and B, typhoid, cholera, yellow fever, rabies, meningitis, measles, mumps and rubella (MMR), Tdap (tetanus, diphtheria, and pertussis), chickenpox, shingles, and influenza.

Consult with your doctor to determine the best antimalarial to use for your trip. 

Both chikungunya and dengue, spread by mosquitoes, are a threat as well. Therefore, you should use both mosquito netting and repellants while in the country.
