Hep B - three shots each costing £40
Yellow fever - one shot at £55
Rabies - 3 shots at £45 each
RABIES - We debated the rabies one until she told us that no-one has ever survived having rabies without vaccine and that if we didnt have the shots before we went and did get bitten we would have 12 hours to get to a clinic to get the vaccine - which sounded reasonable till she pointed out that in high risk areas of rabies they often run out of the vaccine - we decided it was stress we didnt need so got the shots before we went.
If we get bitten we still need to get more vaccines but having the shots before we left means that we wont die of it.
MALARIA TABLETS - so we paid £10 for a prescription and got a 10 day supply of chloroquine tablets for £7 each and are going to buy a supply in India as it will be much cheaper and the rest on the road as we go.
