I'm starting to run into a real big problem. I'm 27, and never had the chickenpox, and I cannot find ANYWHERE that offers the adult vaccination. My school wants me to have the vaccines done before our clinical rotations start in February. And I'm all for it as well, since I'd rather not take the risk of serious complications that can arise from an adult contracting it. On top of this, you are not allowed to miss ANY clinical days or you are dropped from the program, so if I were to contract it, that'd be the end of me being in the nursing program
I've tried my doctor, nearly every health unit in the phone book, random doctor's offices all throughout the phone book, and I've called the hospital and was given more phone numbers of places that may carry it, and I get the same answer everytime, "nope, sorry, we don't carry it". I went through this with my meningitis shot too, NO ONE offered it to adults here, but I finally found a place that did (for $150) and it had to be ordered. I finally got that one done. However, even that clinic does not carry the chickenpox (Varicella) vaccine for adults.
Any suggestions?? I swear, I feel like I may have to jump states just to find a doctor that'll offer it!
