INFECTIOUS THREATS: What Can Get You?
Fishing: Exotic places and third-world countries are a great place to find that catch of a lifetime. Costa Rica, Mexico, Africa, and many other places around the globe offer exciting fishing opportunities and a chance to experience diverse cultures. Catching a peacock bass on the Amazon River, is an experience of a lifetime. Catching malaria while you’re there, is not! In fact, there are many microorganisms awaiting the ill-prepared fisherman in the jungles of South America. Whether you’re eating lunch after a long day of marlin fishing in the Caribbean or touring the streets of some town in Madagascar, you need knowledge, prescriptions, vaccinations, and other forms of protection on your side.
