No Spleen

For my honeymoon, my fiance and I are traveling to Puerto Escondido in the southern part of Mexico located on the Pacific Ocean.  All of my life I have had to struggle with infections. 30 times I've been hospitalized with an infection of one kind or another.  Sometimes its strep in throat or sinuses, a few times I've had kidney infections, and more times recently I have been hospitalized with an unknown infection which cause the high white count, fever, chills, pain etc.  I just had an infected tooth worked on and I'm having another painful tooth worked on in week.  I do believe that my chronic headaches are caused by the teeth problem that has been wrongly diagnosed by my previous dentist.  I am currently on antibiotics because of the infection (Cephalexin).  In the last 4 years I have had a few pneumochacal vaccines because I was told by an infectious disease specialist that I should get one every year.  It has been a year and a half since I have been hospitalized for a high white count/infection, which is the longest time that I can remember.  Are there any immunizations that you would recommend I get for my trip?  Do you have any advice for my trip?

Thanks,


Sarah Villanueva
