Just a quick question, how far before my trip to LOS do I need to go get my injections a good couple of months?

also are there any immunisations I should ask for that they may not offer?

 

Thanks for any help :P

Hi dbiz

 

 

I just spoke to my doctor about my trip to thailand. She's recommended some hepatitis vaccination which requires 1 injection, then a second injection a month later, and then finally a final injection 6 months later. She recommended this after I diplomatically explained WHY I'm going to Thailand i.e not to see the temples :D

 

But obvioulsy best to speak to your doctor.

 

hope this helps

Yes, but you should also take what your doctor says with a grain of salt...since those trained in Western medicine tend to be scaredy-cats (especially where I come from, the US, land of the super scaredy-cats!!) and overall control freaks. They may tell you you need cholera, Japanese encephalitis, rabies, malaria protection...bullshit. Forget cholera, it's barely effective, and those last three, only if you plan to live in a remote village and fondle soi dogs every day...

 

In my opinion (and from years of experience living here), the essentials are tetanus (good for 10 years) and hepatitis A (which you can catch from food), also good for 10 years. If you're planning on having sex with the locals--and let's face it, you wouldn't be posting on this board if you weren't!--hepatitis B is also strongly recommended. They now have a combined A and B shot which takes care of you for a decade.

I too would highly recommend going to your doctor early so that you can get immunised against Hep A and B. You can get Hep A from eating infected food but this strain is not as bad as either B or even worst C. Hep B can be transmitted during unprotected sex as can Hep C. There is no known immunisation against Hep C.

IMHO the ones to get are Hep A+B, Typhoid, and Tetanus. Usually you get the Hep A+B on a six month schedule, but you can accelerate that to get all three shots in one month if you are leaving soon. The drawback is that your immunity will not last as long, my doc says to come back in five years instead of ten.

    • For those that don't know, I did Friday meetings before many years ago,  I feel like we are missing a regular meeting for members,  I am aware guys meet at PA affiliated bars. But I want to start meeting people again, I'm inviting the guys following my YouTube also.

      The meetings is a chance to get to meet each other,  I plan to be at every meeting, I also have Dean from Dive bar that has offered to help out with a crawl after.
      The meetings will be  Monday  6 pm - 8 pm each week.  (The improvised bar crawl will commence at 8 p.m.  Dean will make his own plans for that.)

      Due to low numbers of people in town, I will start the meetings in our bars to help our girls and managers, please check back often incase things are changed.  I will be sharing the love around town later, but Soi 6 is first on my list (including bars that are friendly competition)   
      If bar owners want us to have a meeting at their bar,  they need to have a minimum of 10 girls.  I'm not dragging people to empty bars for favours.
      Please help us invite other members, it takes a while to get momentum.
      Monday 6 pm - 8pm  (then bar crawl after)
      21st March - Playpen Soi 6
      28th March - Night wish bar Soi 6
      4th April - Toy Box bar Soi 6
      11th April - Repent Soi 6
      18th April - where angels play Soi 6
