Getting poked is expensive...

I was at the doctor the Monday (some mean person got me sick), and asked if my insurance would cover the shots that I must have for my work/volunteer positions.

I need:
Hepatitis A vaccine
Hepatitis B vaccine
Flu Shot
Tetanus Booster
PPD (TB Test)

Hep A is $80/shot. Two are needed.
Hep B is $70/shot. Three are needed.
TB Test is $20.
Flu Shot and Tetanus are covered by insurance.

Total damage:
$390 out of pocket. Ugh!

It doesn't help that I'm needle phobic, but that's another story...
