Vaccinations:

Yellow Fever. Travelers above 9 months old coming into or leaving Ghana from countries with risk of Yellow Fever transmission are required to have been vaccinated against Yellow Fever at least 10 days before, and if already vaccinated, the duration of vaccination status of not more than ten years before entering Ghana. This also applies to all travelers leaving Ghana.

Requirements: Required for arriving travelers from all countries if traveler are over 9 months of age. This country considers the certificate of Yellow Fever vaccination to be valid for life. (Updated October 5, 2015)

Malaria. The recommendations for malaria prevention include estimates of malaria risk to foreign travelers. These estimates are based on numbers of malaria cases reported by U.S. travelers and the estimated volume of travel to these countries. In some instances, the risk may be low because the actual intensity of transmission is low in that country. In other instances, malaria transmission may occur only in small focal areas of the country where foreign travelers seldom go. Thus, even though the risk for the average traveler to that country may be low, the risk for the rare traveler going to the areas with higher transmission intensity will be higher. For some countries rarely visited by foreign travelers, insufficient information exists to make a risk estimate. Information about malaria species present in each country is based on the best available data from multiple sources.

Areas with Malaria: All. Estimated relative risk of malaria for foreign travelers: High. Drug resistance 4: Chloroquine. Malaria species: P. falciparum 90%, P. ovale 5%–10%, P. vivax rare.

Recommended chemoprophylaxis: Atovaquone-proguanil, doxycycline, or mefloquine.
