HEY SO, I'm headed to Africa in a few months, and a big thing I'm running into currently is HEALTH STUFF. Fellow travelers, I'd start by checking the CDC website. If you can find a travel clinic, even better! BUT YOU NEED TO BUDGET FOR IT - most people don't think about that when planning their 2nd or 3rd world trip, which is why I'm mentioning it. I'm looking at almost $400 for consult/vaccinations (about $90 each)/preemptive prescriptions/etc, and most travel clinics don't take insurance.
Not sure what prompted this but….good to know I suppose?
