Super J is now immune to evveeryyythinngggg

Not quite. But thats rather what it feels like after Monday.


So in about 7 weeks I go to MADAGASCAR the real island with German Boy and a German crew for three weeks to do nerdy stuff. Which means vaccineeesss!


I have an excellent vaccine record. Its a crooked, photo copied, faxed hand written list from the late 80s. My GP laughed a bit, and then started questioning me. We sorted out the yes and maybes and defniitely not, confirmed I probably wouldn’t be getting blood transfusions (what with my access to swiss medical jets), and off i went to get my arm pumped up. No, scratch that, arms.


Hep A, a polio update, and the last of a never ending series against ticks later, I was ready to head home and wait for the carnage. It wasn’t actually as bad as I was expecting, but a general blehness interspersed with teeth shattering bone deep chills, then back to the bleh. But, now I certainly feel like I have some super powers 🙂


I will be starting the typhus ones in a few weeks, and the malaria prophylaxis just before we go. Definitely indestructible.


(oh and summer has been cancelled this year in switzerland. no sun, no fun, just rain and cold. Its been cheap at least)


About adventuresunplugged

The world is a really cool place. I moved to Zurich almost three years ago to start my PhD, and have really enjoyed the different opportunites living close to the Swiss alps offered. This blog is about some of my adventures, climbing, mountaineering, rock climbing, traveling... life in general! Wow, haven't updated this bad boy in some time! While the above is still true I have gone on to finish the PhD, so that is Dr Unplugged to you. I also have landed a job in Switzerland and will be shortly moving to Geneva. Clearly I have some adventures ahead left to explore with you guys along for company!
