Went to doc today to discuss the trip. I got a flu shot in one arm, the Hep A in the other, prescriptions for malaria Meds and Cipro (and Vicodin from my neurosurgeon for my neck) plus an "order" for the yellow fever shot at the county health department.
We discussed the yellow fever shot in detail, since i am over 60. He feels as most here do, that the benefits far outweigh the risks (like my neuro, my primary care physician has been to Africa, and has had the yellow fever shot himself) Since we are going on to Rwanda where it is required, my only choices were to get the shot, or get a waiver. Mr S and i have decided to get the jab.
I guess we're really coming!Edited: 2:45 am, November 05, 2013
