|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.|
