Not the sort of injection I'm looking for....
There is a wealth of information regarding diseases and prevention on the HU website but my doctor required me to go to the website www.masta.org for a printout of the recommendations listed for my journey. They charge about £4.00 for a list of 10 countries, so I needed 3 pages to list my journey.
The NHS will provide the following free of charge.
Diphtheria, Tetanus and Polio (1 injection)
The following is considered mandatory and will cost me.
Yellow Fever. A Certificate maybe required in some countries.
The following should be seriously considered and will also cost me.
Tick Typhus (inc. Spotted Fever / African Tick Bite Fever)
So if in the next few weeks I say ‘not tonight I’ve got a headache’, it will probably be true!
