fully vaccinated

This morning I went to see a travel nurse. I figured that since I'm going to both Southeast Asia and South America in the next few months, I should see about getting some vaccines. As it turns out, there's actually quite a list of diseases to worry about when traveling. Luckily, I'm up to date on HepA, HepB, TDaP, and MMR, so today I only had to get shots for Typhoid and Yellow Fever, as well as a script for some Malaria pills. After he finished with my vaccines, the nurse pointed out that now I'm pretty much good to go even for Africa, although for that he recommended a polio booster as well. Hmm, Africa...
