However, some are recommended:

  • Anti-Malarial Medicine
  • Yellow Fever Vaccination
  • Hepatitis A Vaccination

Funny, no matter how “adult” (read: old) I am, I still hate shots. I got my Hep A shot from my primary care doctor. Yellow Fever required a trip to a travel clinic run by the City health district. It was $115 plus a $10 inoculation fee. Crazy.

Malarone is the anti-malarial medicine I’ll start taking two days before we leave, all throughout the trip and then for one week after we get home.

I also have some Cipro, just in case.
