VACCINATION

A….. Vaccination is no more dangerous than any other medicine. Unless you have some kind of allergic reaction (which is extremely rare) you will be perfectly fine. Missions is risky, across the street or across the world. If we stay in our comfort zones we will never reach the nations. The risk white missionaries took to come to Africa should encourage us to buckle up and step out for Christ

A…. Covid-19 vaccines 2 doses given 6-weeks apart and yellow fever vaccines one dose is good for many years. Get these asap; they must be in your system at least 2-weeks before traveling. For Covid-19 vaccination please follow this link
