I’m paying a lot to become a NHS pincushion

We just went through the amount of injections that we need, it’s a ridiculous amount of things that can kill you out there in the world, and also I am afraid of needles, eeeek!

So because I’m from Sweden I don’t really get immunised against anything, and have always just gotten the Gamma Globulin injection on holidays that kinda boost your immune system for 3 months, but this travel will more than likely extend beyond 3 months.

So I’m going to need:

  • Yellow Fever
  • Hepatitis A
  • Hepatitis B
  • Rabies
  • Tetenus
  • Typhoid
  • Cholera
  • Japanese encephalitis
  • Thickborn encephalitis
  • Meningococcal meningitis
  • Tubercolusis

Which totals up to around £450!!!

Is this a case of scaremongering or better safe than sorry? I mean the ones that has no treatment after infection costs more, also don’t we have ticks in Europe that can give you encephalitis? Maybe I should bring shit loads of antibiotic in case i feel a tad sick anywhere!

Anyways this is the site that gave us the break down: http://www.fitfortravel.scot.nhs.uk
