    I agree that that's cheap, I think mine were like $40+ each - at the health dept.

    The Hep B vax are actually optional for my school - but I'm getting them anyway (as soon as I wean my toddler)
    Yes, all the major vaccinations are ok when you are nursing, manna. I got my Hep B series, & I've also gotten 2nd MMR, tetanus, and rubella vax's during bf.

    Guess what guys...? I was wrong!! The shot at my local health dept is $65 per shot! however I did find a place who will do it for free, but the only thing is I will only be able to get the first two shots, the last one will have to be at my expense. The offer ends in July, that is why. I think that is pretty good. Does it matter that I will have to get the final shot some place else??

    It shouldn't, I got mine in two different places and my titer was fine. You could always ask to be sure.

    They test your blood to make sure the vaccines worked and you are immune to the virus.

    As long as you have your shot records you should be fine. I'm lucky I went to school in Canada (went to high school here in US). In middle school is when we got vaccinated free (but thats Canada everythings free...lol). I just did my PPD today ,also, so now I have 2 shot records to send to my school (I forgot my original one at home). I think I have every vaccination known to man, anthrax, small pox etc. (thanks to good ol' army). LOL
