One not-so-fun part about moving to a developing country is the myriad vaccinations you have to get to inoculate against various diseases. As soon as I figured out my regular class schedule, I dutifully scheduled an appointment for my immunizations at the FSI health unit.On the List of Posts That Require the Most Shots (Note: This list does not exist. I don’t think.), El Salvador ranks pretty low. You might need your routine booster if you aren’t up to date on your immunizations, but it’s pretty standard.I’m not a total wimp, but I’m not fearless when it comes to shots either. After the TB incident, however, I am willing to sign up for any and all vaccinations that are offered.Hepatitis A inoculation? Yes, please. Three-shot rabies vaccine? Con mucho gusto. Typhoid immunization? Don’t mind if I do. Tetanus booster? I’ll take two. I only need one? Give me two anyway. Wait — who are you calling? No need to do that — I’m only joking. OK, I’ll put the syringe down. I’m sorry.Tomorrow I have my second of three pre-departure appointments at the FSI health unit to receive the above series of immunization shots. I had my first appointment last week, during which I received a three-shot cocktail of the tetanus, hep A #1 and rabies #1 vaccines. Tomorrow I receive the second rabies shot, which the nurse described to me as “the worst one,” which is why it’s getting its own day.I still need to schedule my third appointment to receive the final installment of the rabies series as well as the typhoid vaccine. Then at some point in El Salvador (six months from my first appointment), I’ll need the second hepatitis A shot. So there’s that to look forward to.Do you know if you’re up to date on your immunizations? (I had to dig up a bunch of medical records from when I went to college MORE THAN A DECADE AGO.) Are you brave with needles?
