ouch!

ouch!

i have been poked and punctured more in the last 2 mos then i have in the last 40yrs… but i certainly feel more confident as i head off to foreign lands… and definitely more protected against anything they can throw at me… or that bites me, or that i eat, or breathe…or… 
i got it all – yellow fever, malaria,tetanus,typhoid, poli, Hep A, Hep B, meningitis…blah blah

With the recent outbreak of mumps here (imported from Alberta, they say) i don’t understand people’s reluctance to vaccinate. Yes, you can have your religious beliefs, etc… and i am grateful that i live in a country where you can make that personal choice BUT i certainly feel better knowing i have all these vaccines in my system as i head to Africa.
Also i am not gonna lie to you, i love knowing that my border patrol has the right to prevent anyone from entering my country without specific proof of certain vaccines i.e. yellow fever, etc…

Still the beautiful thing is that it is your choice…

hhhmmmm, just some thoughts…
