French Doctors Round II

It was back to the doctors today for another attempt to actually see someone. It seems that the trick is to go later in the day, I turned up at 5:50pm and an hour later I was into see the doctor, quick work! It turns out I was half right about the pharmacists doing the vaccinations, the doctor gave me a prescription for the ones I want and then I buy them and bring them back and he'll give them to me. A bit odd I know, especially as after I buy them I have about 2 hours at most before I have to take them, hopefully the waiting room is not too full on that day. I'm actually trying to think of some more vaccinations I could take, now that I have found out how cheap they are. According to the doctor, and the prices could be totally different when I actually go to buy them, but it seems I can get a combined tetanus, polio and diphtheria vaccine for 10 euro, hepatitis A for 20 euro and then the typhoid is the expensive one at 40 euro. I guess I could always get meningitis and maybe some of the other hepatitis letters done, but I'm not sure what else there is to do. I did have one worry though, in that I'm pretty sure my polio vaccination lasted for my lifetime (not 100% positive though) so does it matter if I take a 10 year one, will that reduce my lifetime coverage or will it give me autism or something (isn't that what the people against vaccines always say?)
