Hi. We are in the process of adoptiong from Ethiopia and I have a question about vaccines. Some of my birth children are vaccinated and 2 are not. I have not had any vaccines in years and my husband is military, so he has had ALL of them! We are planning to travel to Ethiopia to pick up our child and I was wondering if I will have to get vaccinated? (we are not taking our children with us) Also, will our kids need to be vaccinated for anything since they are not travelling? I am not really worried about hep a because I think it is mild in most children. I would love to not get any vaccines, but I don't want to do that if the risk is great that we would get something and bring it home. Anyone travel to Africa and not get vaccinated? Do you think it is necessary to get vaccinate? Thanks for any advice you have.<br><br>
