Vaccinations are an important consideration when planning a trip to Africa. We visited a travel clinic yesterday and fewer needles than expected were required. Nat needed only yellow fever and tetanus, and Jayne yellow fever and hepA. Two needles each – not so bad. Better a few seconds of discomfort than catching some scary disease. We also need to take malaria meds for 19 days @ $6 per pill (steep but again, better than the alternative). The lesson of the day: mosquitoes are the root of all evil and pack bug spray with DEET!!
