Immunization Night

The Travel Clinic was "kind" enough to visit our group Monday evening to consult with us about the recommended vaccinations for us to get before we go to Belize.  Luckily, there were only two vaccines we each needed to get: Typhoid Fever and Hepatitis A. We were also advised about taking Anti-Malaria medications. 

Personally, I get a little anxious about getting any shot. So of course Monday night made me a little jittery as I waited to receive mine. To my surprise, the shots were very bearable. I felt much more pain with the flu shot. I will credit this to the nice lady from the travel clinic who administered them to us.

With the immunizations out of the way we are that much closer to being ready to board our flight for the trip. With 31 days left until we leave, we plan to collect supplies and hopefully have one more bottle drive to help pay for things like vitamins and crayons to give to the young kids.
