I'm not too worried about shoes at the beach. The ocean is full of oxygen and does a good job covering the sand and soaking down. However if it's a coral beach or sea urchin beach or sharp lava...

Just to be clear--the recommendation is NOT (at least in the US) to get a Tdap in pregnancy for the tetanus component. It's for the pertussis component because current thinking says that a maternal...

I might be missing something here but I don't see anything weird or offensive about the title!? Otherwise i still think you can get a waiver. I can't see why it would not be possible.
