Vaccinations are complete

Today was the last day of the series of three rabies vaccination shots that Tom, Katie and I have been taking. It was also the last in a series of three shots of Hepatitis B shots for me.

I thought it would be worthwhile writing up exactly what I vaccinations have taken in preparation for this trip. While this is my personal list I assume that my fellow team mates also have these vaccinations. I have also listed the prices that I paid here in Korea roughly converted into USD

Vaccination List – What I already had before the trip and therefore didn’t need.

  • Tetanus/Diphtheria (lasts 10 years)
  • Hepatitis A (supposedly lasts for life)

Was vaccinated for Varicella (chicken pox) and Pertussis (whooping cough) as a kid.

Vaccinations in the last 3 months

  • Polio / $25 (this is a booster that lasts 10 years)
  • Hepatitis B / $70 – (3 shots over 3 months – Lasts for life)
  • Typhoid / $25 – (1 shot that lasts for 3 years)
  • MMR / $20 – (1 shot for measles, mumps and rubella that lasts for 10 years)
  • Japanese Encephalitis / $25 – (one shot that lasts for life)
  • Rabies / $160 – (3 shots over 4 weeks – lasts for 5 years)

(We will also be carrying a supply of Malaria pills that may be needed in a few areas)

After consulting with various physicians about the areas we will be traveling the following vaccinations have not been taken.

  • Meningococcal Meningitis
  • Yellow Fever
  • Cholera + E.Coli
