Several: Be sure to check with your personal physician or a travel medicine doctor. You can find a lot of information on the cdc.Gov website under travel medicine also. There are several vaccines that you should have as well. Antibiotics and other 'versatile' medications would be good to take with you too. Not all medications are easy to find there or are trustworthy to use.

Vaccines & Meds: Recommended Vaccines if going to Kenya: Hepatitis A, Typhoid & the regulars (MMR, DTP, Varicella polio & flu shot). Malaria prophylaxis if going to low altitude regions. Yellow fever in some areas of Kenya. Hepatitis B if involved in behaviors that make that a risk. Meningitis if going to Kenya during dry season. See a travel medicine specialist for more med recommendations (l.e. for diarrhea)
