Getting the medical stuff in order

As I mentioned previously, my Peace Corps medical packet came to me in the mail after much anticipation. I flipped through it when it arrived, had my appointments set up, and then left it alone.

Yesterday I finally decided to see about getting my second HepA shot, since I got my first about 8 months ago. Since I new I would be doing some traveling, I figured this would be a good thing to do.

The first shot was done at the Student Care Center here, but now that I am a graduate I can no longer use them so I’ll have to get my second shot elsewhere. It will probably make the most sense to just tack this onto all the medical stuff I’ll be doing when I get home. Currently I’m scanning all of the documents so that I have backups and can send the extra info to my mother to pass on to the dentist/doctor/etc. Which is a bit of a pain.

I still have to figure out what to do about the tuberculin test. I have one from about 10 months ago, but I imagine they’ll want a fresher test. I’ll give my Medical Screening Assistant a call today and see if I can’t get this taken care of.

That’s all the news I have right now, except that I seem to have passed the legal check. So all that’s left is this medical stuff!
