Vaccinations (Kampala)


Hello, my husband and I will be arriving in Kampala next month and staying upto 5 months before we head to Ethiopia. What are expat's views on travel vaccinations and malaria tablets? We had jabs for a trip to Tanzania 4 years ago so other than Typhoid (which only lasts 3 years) we have all the recommended innoculations; should we get another typhoid injection and any views on malaria tablets? We currently live in Dubai and can only get access to Mefloquin - anybody taking it and are the dreams as bad as the stuff I've read about on the internet?!! We will be permanently based in Kampala and other than usual tourist stuff at the weekends don't expect to be heading into the bush. Really appreciate any advice, tips etc. Thank You!
