Dialogue 

Terry:  Hi, Mrs. Kent, how are you doing since you injured your arm?
Mrs. Kent: I feel better, thanks for asking Terry.  I’m on my last dose of tetanus jab to prevent further episodes of infection. 
Terry: It’s good you're keeping up on your vaccination schedule to protect against infection. 
Mrs. Kent: Better be safe than sorry. And way to go for medicine, the vaccine is effective for 10 years. That’s longer than booster shot.  Here’s my prescription for me and my 7-year-old son. How much do they cost?
Terry:  An ampule of Anti-tetanus is $97 and tetanus toxoid is $90.50. The total charge would be $187.50.  
Mrs. Kent: Great! Here’s my credit card.
Terry: Here are your vaccines, and your credit card. It’s a good thing you brought your thermal cooler with you too to ensure the vaccines stay cold for at least an hour. 
Mrs. Kent: I kept it in mind when you told me that excessive heat and light exposure can damage the vaccines’ potency.  
Terry: Yes. And extreme cold can make the vaccine useless.
Mrs. Kent: You’re always right. Thanks again. Bye.
Terry:  Bye bye. 

Think about it

  1. Why should Mrs. Kent keep up on her vaccination schedule?
  2. How long is the vaccine effective?
