Typhoid, Meningitis, Yellow Fever... OH MY!

I went to the Health Department this morning to start my rounds of vaccines for my trip to Africa. I had NO idea I had to get so many shots.. If I had I may have turned my dad down without another thought... But... I didn't so I walked in like a lamb to slaughter... I wont lie... the Yellow Fever one is the worst by far! Only 2 more to go and I will be set... aside from the one I need to complete in June!

I feel your pain! I got SEVEN, all in my arms for my trip to Africa. I couldn't move for a few days! I actually got a vaccine today and this was the third one and they always put it in cold and it hurts SO bad.

Where are you going in Africa...did I miss that?

I did miss this "I'm going to Africa" thing. Are your parents still on a mission out there? Or are you taking a special trip with your Dad? We need to hook up woman!

I wonder if you will get sick from those?
You need to make the official announcement that you are going...I don't think you've done that yet!

Yuck!! I don't care for shots so having to get so many and some of those have got to really hurt!! But what an awesome experience!! I'm still jealous even with having to get all the shots!!

Shots... Too much fun. I think that would totally keep me from going. Eric keeps talking about taking a trip to Africa, and I've been apprehensive about the thought. Now that I know about the shots, no way! But I am totally excited for you!

My brother travels to Africa twice a year, and we are all so jealous! What a fantastic opportunity, and your kids will want to follow in your footsteps!
