Visited a doctor today as part of my Big Trip preparations. My mum perversely thought that a flu jab was all-important but Dr Iean pooh-poohed that idea and pointed out greater dangers. The list runs as follows: typhoid, malaria, hepatitis A and meningitis. I got my typhoid jab today, and I had to go to Mecca three years ago so I probably still have meningococcal thingies still floating around my bloodstream (what are they again? I can't remember the technical term). I'm buying malarial tablets and I do recall once Dr Virik giving me a couple of Hep jabs, although I can't remember exactly what it was for.
