Great reminder! It is surprising how many just shrug about getting up to date on innoculations for overseas travel. I see tourists munching on unpeeled fruits and using street vendor ice in drinks-bet they spend half of their vacation in their rooms close to the bathrooms. Many Americans are unaware of a resurgence of polio in some areas of the world-adults need an update/booster for polio. Also some areas typhoid is a real health concern. In Seim Reap where we visited last Dec there had been over 600 deaths from this day-time munching mosquito carried illness. Better to be safe than sorry and ruin your holiday..................or your life. Shanti/Mary-Anne
