October 21, 2010
I got my shots for my trip to Kenya. I had to get four shots--yellow fever, typhus, hep A, and polio. It was really scary, but fortunately I didn't get any reactions. The shots were so expensive-$400.00--and insurance doesn't even cover it though the US won't let you back into the country without a yellow fever certificate. I hope the trip doesn't get cancelled with all this live virus in my body. I just can't believe that they give you all these shots at once. There does seem to be a lot of activity going on beneath my skin and my stomach is mildly upset and my arms really hurt. I'll be careful to sleep on my back tonight.
