Round the World, Travel

Shot Up!

August 24, 2010

Just got two of three recommended immunization shots–typhoid and tetanus.  Unfortunately, they were out of the Hepatitis A shot, so I have to go back in a couple of days (how an office that specializes in travel immunizations runs out, I don’t know).  I thought for sure they would have recommended one for malaria, but they said I really wasn’t going anywhere that would put me at risk.  Staying healthy is pricey.  I assumed health insurance would cover this, but immunization for travel is not.  I guess one of the few positive things about the health care bill is that preventative care is covered.   I mean, would insurance companies rather cover the cost of an immunization or the care for the disease if you get it by not taking precautions in the first place?  Makes sense to me.
