So! You’ve gotten your mission call–what next?
There’s a lot to do in preparing physically and spiritually for a mission, so it can be overwhelming in trying to decide where to start. Maybe the best place is with the least-appealing aspect of physical preparation (and one which may take a few months to complete): the shots.
If you’re serving in another first-world country, or even State-side, YOU STILL MAY NEED ADDITIONAL SHOTS. My brother, who is serving in Japan, made the mistake of not checking up on his immunizations (he had visited Japan before, and you wouldn’t particularly think of Japan as being somewhere that you would be particularly susceptible to a certain disease) and was almost unable to have them completed in time for him to leave. SO, to save you stress and scrambling later, do yourself a service and check up on your immunizations now. 🙂
