Recommended?

So lots of little (and big) things to get done.  Today I had an appointment with a travel doctor about vaccinations and medications to take to Viet Nam.  I actually was going to cancel the appointment because based on research, I had all the required vaccinations.  But to be safe I went.  The doc and I had a good conversation and I explained that I had all the required vaccinations.  She looked at me square in the eyes and said “then apparently you do not understand the difference between required and recommended.”  Hold up.  Wait a minute.  I asked her to enlighten me. She said required are vaccines by that government so you don’t bring an unwanted disease/infection into their country.  Recommended are diseases that are in that country already that you could get while you are there but they don’t care because you are not their problem!  My mouth totally hit the floor!  Yaaaassss I said.  Load me up doc.  Get those needles working and she stabbed me up good 😁💉💉💉💉💉💪🏽💪🏽💪🏽.
