Shots, Shots, Shots, Shots, Shots - $870 worth

With the joy of traveling to exotic places come with a bit of pain in the form of vaccines both orally and injectable.  For my travels to SE Asia and S America with the help the International Travel Clinic in San Diego, I decided six that will hopefully keep me safe.  

Four shots one day, no biggie. 
Here are there names, how long they last, the cost that I paid, and a link to CDC: 

I also had the following already:
Hepatitis B

And I decided against Rabies, because the preexposure vaccination only is decrease the number of vaccine doses needed after exposure and it costly at $225 per vaccination.

Now I only have to wait four weeks for my second Japanese Envcephaltis vaccines, and then I'll have all my painful shots out of the way for this trip so I can have all the fun ones.
