Baby Vaccines

Thursday, October 22, 2009

Via is now nearing 11 months old and we're almost done with vaccines for the first year. Only the chicken pox vaccine is left when she turns one in December. These vaccines really cost a lot. Luckily, some of them were available free or discounted from my office. She didn't get all the vaccines recommended by her Pedia because P just wanted her to have those that are required, not the optional vaccines. She's a little behind schedule but no big deal according to her Pedia. Here's what she got, when and how much:

December 2008 Hepa B
January 2009 Hepa B P750
February 2009 BCG and 5-in-1 Free
April 2009 Pneumococcal (Prevenar) P3,330.30 (discounted)
May 2009 5-in-1 Free
June 2009 Pneumococcal (Prevenar) P3,330.30 (discounted)
July 2009 Hepa B Free
August 2009 5-in-1 Free
September 2009 Pneumococcal (Prevenar) P3,330.30 (discounted)
October 2009 Measles P1,000
December 2009 Chicken Pox

Note: 5-in-1 includes diptheria, tetanus, pertussis, polio and Hib.

We skipped the rotarix vaccine. Even with the freebies and discounts, the vaccines still cost a lot when totaled. But it's protection for babies so we need to give it to them to keep them in good health.

Vaccines are better than getting the diseases they prevent. It sounds like you got the important ones.
