Travel health: what shots do Americans need before traveling to Tanzania?

edited October 2010 in Africa
I don't know what vaccinations I need to get for a trip to Tanzania, what are the travel health recommendations for tourist travel to the country? I'm an American going to Tanzania and I don't know what shots I need to get before going. What is Rift Valley Fever and can you get medicine for it? Also what is african sleeping sickness and tsetse flies? Can I get an anti-malaria mosquito net there or do I need to buy one before I go?
