Apparently, ticks are prevalent in Austria. Therefore, it is highly recommended that residents are to be vaccinated against Tick-Borne Encephalitis (a.k.a Viral Meningitis). It’s a disease that attacks the nervous system and every 100th case results in death of the affected person. YIKES!
So knowing me, I got Hubs to sign us up for the three interval vaccination! It’s also convenient that these shots are offered at the U.N. health center. We both got our first doses today and will be getting our second in April. Whew! That’s one less thing to worry about, especially with spring around the corner. For the first time since we’ve been here, the temperatures have finally been steadily above freezing. We are super excited about spring time here. We’ve heard nothing but wonderful things and can’t wait to experience it.
We’ve also started brainstorming/planning our future travel plans…so stay tuned!
