As Amber and I are going to the Gobi desert for a few days, and there are wild packs of dogs roaming even the cities of Mongolia….the CDC recommends that I get the set of pre-exposure Rabies shots!

So I had to search a bit on the internet, talk to several people in the community, to figure out how to acquire these shots.

Basically insurance covers all but about 28 dollars for these 208 dollar shots (each).  I have to have a set of 3 shots.

Rabies shots are given into the deltoid (upper arm).  Day 0, Day 7 and at Day 21 or 28.  My doctor ordered the shots, and on the 4th, I’ll be getting my first set of rabies shots.

Then two weeks prior to leaving, I’ll be getting my typhoid shot!
