We went to Justin’s pediatrician two Saturdays ago for his pneumonia vaccine, his final shot in a series of four, each costing a whopping Php5,000.00. Boy, I didn’t know immunizations cost much these days! Just one shot and in a snap, my husband’s hard-earned bucks disappeared before our very eyes. Since birth until now (Justin is now 1 year and 8 months old), he’s had a total of 33 shots, some of those given in combination, with prices ranging from Php1,000.00 to Php5,000.00. No matter the cost, Ed and I tell ourselves at least we know our son is protected. We’re investing on his health, and that’s all that matters.
