Immunizations

In preparation to travel to South Korea, we were advised to have some Immunizations done.  So earlier this summer I had a tetanus shot and I had already been updated on diphtheria and polio so I was good there.  We have to find out about Matt for those 3… Today we started our Twinrix shots for Hepatitis B and Hepatitis A.  It is a 3 shot process – one today, one in a month, and one in 6 months from today.  Don’t believe the doctor/nurse when they say it won’t hurt – it will.  It goes into your arm muscle – and it gets sore!  Even Matt who has big arms was commenting.

One more step done!

  1. You are so right about the immunizations hurting! I could barely move my arm for 24 hours. It hurt like crazy! We had our typhoid/hep a and hep shots done last week.

    You are very wise to get your immunizations done now, especially with the timelines so quick lately! We hadn’t even started ours when we received our referral. Isn’t it such a great feeling to be able to say that you are one step closer? Your time is coming!
