Sicily had her 12th month check-up today. We have a wonderful pediatrician at a clinic of the National Children's Hospital, Dr. Nathalie Quion (great first name as well!). She reviewed the list of recommended immunizations for India and suggested that Sicily get one for Hepatitis A outside of the regularly scheduled immunizations for the U.S., unless her TB shot came back positive.
We discussed malaria and her opinion was that since we would be in a big city we should use preventative measures like bug spray and mosquito nets instead of putting Sicily on any medication. She has experience with living in other countries, so she was very comforting to talk to.
She also told us to ask for a health certificate from any care providers we may get outside of the U.S., since that is a common be a way to get TB.
We will miss her for these next two years, but we know exactly where to go when we are back in D.C.
