Probably looks like a stupid question, and to be honest, it is. But on the 8th of december I have to go for a 30 minute marathon of MMR, Hepatitis A, Hepatitis B and Typhoid innoculations (possibly tetanus, malaria and Japanese Encephalitis, but they're getting back to me on that), and I'm pretty scared about it.

For any other situation where I'm scared and have to get something done (Live performance, exams and er... removing spiders from my room), I can just have a couple of shots and it's all kosher, but obviously, vaccination means putting stuff into your blood.

Don't bother telling me I'm stupid for doing this, I already know that, just tell me if it's going to kill me or make the vaccination redundant.

It's never a good idea to drink and do any sort of needle thing.

I'm not self medicating- nor am I going to offer the nurse a drank.

I got real confused, pissed means angry in the U.S.

However don't get vaccinations when you've been drinking, it'll inhibit your body's ability to accept the vaccine.

IIRC, you can't be vaccinated against malaria.


I think I get pills for that. I'm not sure about those three- she told me we'll discuss them later.

Hmmm... they say not to take drugs with alcohol, but that's because of potential chemical interactions. I personally wouldn't have anything stuck into me when drunk, and I suggest you follow that. If only because your immune system is going to start playing up when you get vaccinated, and getting pissed when your immune system is active isn't too fun a feeling, from experience.

EDIT: And malaria tablets are dead fun. Evidently this is sarcasm. A friend of mine we were going to travel with had a bad reaction to them and was hospitalised. Many malarial drugs have pretty un-nice side effects.

Wouldn't risk it, the choices are suck it up or possibly become seriously ill.

Its not a good idea in any case, but id possibly expect a fair amount of blood squirtage because alcohol thins your blood quite a lot

Malaria prohylaxis is a bit of a bugger. For one, you have to pay for the meds, and you have to start them before you leave(to see if you suffer from side effects, and leave time to change them), and for a period after you return.
I'd advise looking into it yourself, if just to reinforce what you're told about the need for it.
Malaria != good

Not only that, but for some of them there are several different types of tablets you need to take on different days and then it all goes to ****.

Just take the shots; they're not that bad, worrying about them causes more fear than the shots themselves elicit.

Indeed. Nurses used to spend 6 weeks on 'bacteria glaring' to keep the wards clean.

I threw up every single day I was in Thailand thanks to malarone.

I'm pretty sure you shouldn't drink before you get shots... and they'll probably tell you not to drink for like 24 hours after getting them too.
