Hi Nell
There are no injections she needs, but if you are going to a malaria area you need to take malaria prevention tablets - see www.travelclinic.co.za.
You can use cyclizine syrup for travel sickness - 12,5 mg 1/2 an hour before traveling.
Keep her dressed in cool loose cotton clothes, take a fan with, get caladryl to use if she gets a heat rash.
