butternut - wwm!

what are your recommendations?
i was thinking of hep a & typhoid... but it would cost me $291 for all of that plus some bogus consultation fee (okay, i'm bitter) - can i just give them a miss?

I know it sucks, I know over the past 1.5 years I must have dished out over 300 bucks in vaccinations alone...

Dont they say if you cant afford travel insurance you cant afford your trip?! Necessary evil I guess.

Was going to get hep B shots before i left, but found out you actually need to do a course of shots over a coulple of month period... No time for that, but i guess when i die from an exploded pancreas i would have wished i had devoted a bit of time to the old vacanations...

Ahwell...
