Today we had an appointment with C. Bruce Norman at the Travel Clinic at Henrico Doctors' Hospital. In addition to our "standard" immunizations, we opted to receive an immunization against Typhoid Fever. While the chances of getting typhoid are not good, it is recommended for "risk averse" travellers who will have an extended stay in Turkey. Since "risk averse" describes me to a "T," we ponied up the $ for the shots. It is also available as a series of pills, but the shot seemed much easier. Ms. Norman is a consummate professional and was able to speak confidently about the region and briefed us on the primary the health concerns. Rabies is the big one, so we all discussed leaving cute, furry animals alone. We also got to see some new syringes that retract their needles after they have been used. That was pretty cool. Our arms are a little sore, but we have another important item checked off our to-do list. She also gave us her contact information in case we have questions. Their web site is, 804-747-5627.
