Time for shots. I forgot how expensive they can get, but based on the variety of places that I’m going, I needed to get quite a few but only got my Hep A/B shot today as they didn’t have records of my other shots. Unfortunately when my money belt was liberated from me in Guatemala, it had my shot records. Fortunately, I had a photocopy but didn’t bring it with me. I’m still not sure if I need to get a few other vaccinations.
To figure out what vaccinations I needed, I got them from the traveler information page at the CDC. South East Asia requires so many immunizations that they will cover me for all the other countries I will visit in Central Asia. I need to get:
- Standard Vaccinations: measles/mumps/rubella (MMR) vaccine, diphtheria/pertussis/tetanus (DPT) vaccine, poliovirus vaccine
- Hepatitis A/B
- Japanese encephalitis I’m not sure if I’m going to get JE because it is so rare. Any advice?
So far I’ve completed my entire Hep A/B series (3 shots) and Typhoid.
