The Japanese Encephalitis vaccine turned up at my pharmacy. I went along to the clinic so the nurse could jab me with that and the combo hep A/B. I appeared to have a minor reaction to the JE vac, which they had never given to anyone before. My left arm was in considerable pain yesterday, I had to stay at the clinic for a time until I felt I could drive. I also ended up getting the shits from the typhoid oral vac a couple of days ago. Another dose today, perhaps I'll make something simple for dinner...
There was a surprising amount of admin involved in this project. The most complex of which was the ethics clearance which alone is viewed as some sort of achievement having it completed and approved. We're talking several days of work for that. Then there's university administration for going on fieldwork. I need to lodge a study away form. I need to register for university insurance. Both of those need line-by-line descriptions of a travel itinerary. The free student insurance policy isn't going to cover my time in Taipei so I needed to go off and buy some to cover 3-4 weeks. Then there's a fieldwork funding application. All of these things have to be done in a set order because form x requires that you show that you did form y. Oh, let's try the 'read more' thing so as not to clutter the blog stream...
