We’ve found a doc who specializes in travel medicine. Appropriately, he warns about everything: “Don’t touch the water, don’t touch the animals, don’t eat anything raw unless you can peel it, etc. etc.” He’s right of course and if we followed his every bit of advice it would be less of an adventure. But he has also helped us outfit a personal first aid kit and supplied us with anti-malarials. And he keeps track of our shots and vaccinations: essential if you are going to travel the world. Finding a travel doctor you can use consistently has been a good value for us. The downside: We’ve never left his office without getting at least one shot!
