I didn't need any vaccines for my trip to Japan but, my doctor recommended Hep. A, Malaria and Typhoid for my trip to Costa Rica.

I just checked the CDC's list of recommended vaccines for Senegal and it seems to be a bit longer. I'll check with my doctor and get whatever she recommends.

Here's the CDC list:
Yellow Fever
Hepatitis A
Hepatitis B

I'm going to Senegal!!!

I was very lucky to receive a Fulbright-Hays Seminar Abroad Award that will take me to Senegal this summer. While I was very excited and honored to receive the award, I was also a bit disappointed that I would have to cancel my plans to travel to China with Mr. Rhee. So, maybe China will happen next summer. In the meantime, I have a lot of preparation to do before I leave for Senegal; including a three day orientation in Boston. I'll try to keep everyone up to date throughtout my great adventure in Senegal.
