Prevention is better than cure

But I didn't know it can cost so much wohhh!

Brought Alisya for her immunisation - the 3 in 1. 1st jab muka selamba. Tak nangis pun. Terror. 2nd jab ... hahaha.... terus broke down. But just a shortwhile. Girl power! I remembered Abg Idin & Hafiz dulu, I think the whole hospital trembled.

Tapi la hey..... why so expensive one eh? I withdrew some money thinking that it would be more than enough to cover for the cost with some surplus to bring bibi & the boys for makan2 after that. But to my surprise.... tak cukup !!! Luckily got plastic money on standby. Aiyooooo......

Other than the itemised cost for consultation fee, the bill originally only stated 'medicine' with a lump sump figure. I asked for the breakdown and the cashier was understanding enough (my terkejut beruk facial expression could have thrown her off balance I tell you!) and she helped print out the itemised cost for each of the vaccines.

I wonder..... was it the cost of vaccination that has really gone up since the last 6 years? Or was it the hospital that 'strangle blood'?

Must check around how much it costs other mothers for the same 3 in 1 jab like this.


Salam,
Ibu

p/s My lil' princess Alisya.... when you can read this in the future.... hah... ingat tau! Bukan 'murah' nak membesarkan anak2 zaman sekarang.

Immunisation at private healthcare memang mahal. I bukan aje terkejut beruk, tergolek dog terus sebab I took 3 singles and not 3 in 1. Lagi haru...

Shah Alam has a govt clinic yang tak ramai sangat orang. Maybe you want to check it out for your darling baby's future inoculations.

salam.. i'm ur silent reader :)

i totally agree with u.. the cost for immunisation is getting higher and higher these days.. only 2 days ago i brought my daugther for her 3 months' chk up.. n the bills comes at RM400++ for the compulsary jab and pneumococal.. tp at least the doc explain in advance la whc one tht we want to tk and advise the cost for each one.. we already knew the pneumococcal is somewht expensive so mmg dah ready duit.. tp x amek the rotavirus as x ready kan another 150.. pehh..
