Vaccine update 5/19/17:  Dakar awaits the full coverage quadrivalent meningococcal vaccine to protect against meningitis (look for the name Menomune or Menactra).  Some locations in Dakar (Pharmacie Guigon, Pharmacie Republique, Pharmacie Arc En Ciel) have a partial coverage vaccine (look for the name Meningo A / C).  For those that are seeking the meningococcal vaccine, I suggest you discuss with your healthcare provider what is best for you and your family:  to take what is available now, to wait for the full coverage vaccine to arrive in Dakar, or to wait until you travel, if you travel elsewhere, in the summer.  Institut Pasteur does not have the vaccine at this time.


Cheers to your Health,

Nurse Jen
