Default Just had my injections for Kenya safari

I got my injections today. Got two: (1) hepatitis (2) typhoid.

I don't like injections so I was a little nervous. But these ones were a
breeze. Small needles that hardly penetrate the skin. No problems. Why
didn't someone tell me?

Off to Kenya on 26 Jan!

Kenya is a great place. I went there as a teen for about a year

Why didn't you take the yellow fever injection? Needy not in Kenya
maybe, but you will need it if you go to other countries later.

I came from Kenya three weeks and LOVED it!

Is yellow fever inoculation by injection or taken orally (tablet)?

It`s by injection and the best of all inoculations as it doesn`t hurt,
I have had it three times, and it lasts for ten years. I have never had
any reaction from it either!

Very light stingy innoculation, you won't even notice it. The lighthest
of all innoculations and lasts for ages. Should take it if you go to
Rift Valley, Naivasha.

One additional hint:
Yellow fever inoculation may only be done at licensed facilities.
Check with your local health department.
