Vaccinations Complete

After three visits over one month to the Brevard County  Health Department  our travel vaccinations are complete.  I was very surprised how expensive these vaccines are. For instance we each received three rabies vaccines with each costing $275!

The recommended vaccines that we didn’t already have were:

  • Hepatitis A for Jocelyn
  • Flu
  • Rabies three doses
  • TDAP
  • Polio
  • Pneumovax for Mike
  • Yellow Fever
  • Typhoid
  • MMR

Fortunately we both have had three doses of Hepatitis B.

We passed on the two doses of Japanese Encephalitis at $350 each as we will get those before China at hopefully a less expensive dose. It is only good for a year and it is not needed until Western China and all of Southeast Asia.

We would like to thank our nurse Nichole at the Brevard County Health Center. She was very informative and mapped out our vaccines and made it mostly painless except for the over $3200 cost!
