So this week I have been discovering how many horrible and nasty diseases I could get on my travels (lots).
Fortunately due to the wonders of modern medicine there are lots of vaccines available.
On Monday I went and got some malaria tablets and a yellow fever shot. The latter is one of the vaccines where they actually give you a mild form of the disease. OnThursday I then got typhoid and tetanus, polio and rubella. On Thursday night, I went down the pub for a pint – big error!
The only one I haven’t got is rabies as getting all the shots takes a month and I haven’t got that long. I shall just have to be careful not to touch any stray dogs (or monkeys).
