Next Stop: Vaccination

According to the CDC, given our itinerary we should watch out for: hepatitis A, hepatitis B, typhoid, rabies, Japanese encephalitis, malaria, polio, dengue, filariasis (sounds dirty), leishmaniasis (sounds painful), plague, tickborne encephalitis, H5N1, schistosomiasis (fun to say), leptospirosis (not as fun to say), tuberculosis, diphtheria… and… the flu.

Let’s see, we’re already covered for about six of those. I guess we’re headed to the Travel Clinic soon.
