In case you’ve not seen it, I’ve started a new blog with my friend about a volunteering trip we’re going on to the Philippines. Take a look around if you have time – we’d love you to join our journey via the blog :o)
I am turning into a pin cushion. On Monday I had injections in my gums so I could have a filling replaced. Today I had an injection in each arm; rabies in the right, Hepatitis B in the left.
I knew I’d probably have to have a couple of immunisations before I went to the Philippines. What I didn’t realise was how many, or how much it would cost. Today, in return for the promise if a lot more needles….
- Tetanus (done)
- Polio (done)
- Diphtheria (done)
- Hep A
- Hep B x 2 more
- Japanese encephalitis x 2
- Rabies x 1 more
….I have parted with £442. (And that is with a discount! I assume for bulk buying…). I must have looked a bit shocked as the nurse said I could ‘probably risk not having a couple of them’.
Me: Which ones?
Nurse: Rabies is probably low risk
