    Hi guys, I'm a little confused about the immunizations required for the Generic option ( I don't know if the accelerated and bridge options require same type and amount of vaccines), in the first page of the vaccines/immunization record it says two immunizations are required for Varicella, but when I turn the page, it says only one vaccine is necessary. So, how many immunizations are really required for Varicella, and if you know a place where I can get them at a cheap price.

    Prospective, can you PM me the list of must take/avoid professors...thanks

    Thanks to all.

    Prospective, when you can pm me with the names to avoid? thanks
    As of now, I don't have any. I am in search of them myself. Like others, I have heard recommendations but at times it's more important to know who to avoid. I'm guessing we could PM some current MDC students from year old threads and ask them. I was just getting the ball rolling and hope others would join me in the search of who to avoid,

    No, I am Generic. I have an AA in Biology, so I don't qualify for the accelerated.

    ProspectiveMDC, thank you for your PM's

    Yesterday, I went to see my doctor and ask her about the MDC medical requirement. I told her that I will be needing several items and she said that my insurance would not cover it, so it will cost just for the Hepatitis alone about $480.00 and just only this, and nothing else. I told her to hold on, let me find if I could get it cheaper somewhere else. Right now, I have been calling doctor's office to see how much they charge. No Luck so far.

    Rostata call 305-635-1445 Occupational Medical Center. They are very good, and the price is fair!
    Good Luck!

    Yeah, Occupational Med Ctr. is a good place. Very clean and nice there! They charge only $35 for the drug test and $25 for the TB test, but I'm unsure about the Hep B test. The physical I think they charge 20, but you still can't get the immunizations there. Ultimately that is what costs the most. The Varicella alone is $92 at the health dept. and that is where it shouldn't cost that much. I have medicaid and I wish I would've just paid for it out of pocket the things that I had to deal with.

    Hi Mommy's Girl, do you know how many immunizations are required for Varicella?
  12. by   MOMMY'SGIRL
    Chi: For Varicella, if you had the chicken pox when you were a child, you just need to have the titer drawn; however, if you did not then they are asking for 2 Varicella vaccinations!
  13. by   chiqui24
    thanks mommy's girl. oh, I think I won't have all the vaccinations done on time, I heard that after you get your fist Varicella vaccine you have to wait a month in order to get the second one...:uhoh21:
