Both arms are really sore today

September 8th, 2011 at 07:46 pm

I ended up with 3 shots, 2 in my right arm and 1 in the left. They were for hepatitis A, tetanus and pandemic influenza. We ended up paying $260, so $130 each. I've already taken this out of the holiday fund. Now we just need to get travel insurance.

Before going to the doctors last night DH had to also go to his physio for his arm (tennis elbow injury). Thank godness that was fot the last time he has to see him. He has been going for over 2 months now (once a week). He had to pay full price yesterday because we have now used up all the deductables for physiotherapy for the year. It ended up costing him $65, instead of the $22.50 in the previous weeks. i just hope he doesn't get another injury for a long while, then maybe we can finish our renovation.

After yesterday, I really need a NSD today.

    Bad enough to get separately - I got the Hep A shot with a harpoon and my shoulder was sore for a week. And while the tetanus didn't hurt at the shot, it was still for a week. But look on the bright side: it'll be hard to hand over cash! Big Grin

    Yeah it was harder to fork out that cash. DH and I was laughing on the way home when we realised our shots cost more than our accommodation!

    I hope it doesn't take a week for the soreness to go away.

    Wow, those shots really add up! Were they not covered by any insurance at all? I would think that stuff like that would lead to preventive care, wouldn't it? Sorry your arms are sore, I've been there. They don't exactly "space out" the inoculations in the military. Smile Jerry

    Arms are a lot better today. Unfortunately they are not covered by insurance. We had to get them at the pharmacy, except for the flu shot which we got for $20 each at the clinic. At least seeing the local doctors here are free for everyone.
