Our vaccine refrigerator is fully stocked! We again have all indicated childhood vaccines, including hepatitis A.
We also have received a new shipment of HPV vaccine, which is given in children as young as 9 years old to prevent cervical cancer. Children receiving this vaccine before age 15 only need two lifetime doses, while adolescents receiving this vaccine at or beyond age 16 need three lifetime doses.
Everyone living in Rwanda needs an updated typhoid and meningitis ACWY vaccine. Typhoid is boosted every 2-3 years depending on risk, while meningitis ACWY is boosted every 5 years. Check your vaccine cards–we find that many people are behind on these!
Despite the global shortage, we do have yellow fever vaccines in stock.
Vaccines may be given by appointment or during walk-in hours.
