There has been an amusing conclusion to the Europe-wide search for a Tick-Born Encephalitis (TBE) vaccination next week to top up my immunity to this common and widespread disease which people are most exposed to in spring and summer in the woods, ie. me. This was the reply that had me concerned from an ideally situated clinic in Berlin:
Dear Mr. Evans, we have not the vaccination of tick-borne encephalitis, only Japanese encephalitis and FSME. Mit freundlichen Grüßen, Institut für Tropenmedizin und Internationale Gesundheit, Spandauer Damm 130, 14050 Berlin.I had no luck yesterday finding another clinic on www.istm.org to do this jab. So I decided to enlist the help of a good friend in Germany who could ring round for me and find me a clinic. To help him I did a google translate of TBE... in German it is FSME. Hurrah!
Neither of the above is date-related, but my tweet this morning about changing plans and doing RTW by motorbike was an April Fool, did I get anyone with that?
