Outreach Vaccination/Immunization Preparation
If you are not up to date on your childhood vaccinations, or feel strongly against receiving travel immunizations, that of course is absolutely your choice and decision. But you will be directed by your school staff to a safer outreach location where you will not be exposed to some of these potentially lethal illnesses. If you have had no childhood vaccinations, it is not possible to complete all of them safely during the 3 months of the lecture phase.
