well you mentioned earlier about it being harder to transfer through a mucous membrane... is that the case with your nose? I know the blood vessels are closer to the surface (hence why you snort) but isn't there a muscous membrane in your nose? or am I wrong here?

sorry, I think either I misspoke or you misunderstood. I said that its not transfered via mucous.... i.e. sharing boogers isn't going to facilitate transfer.
The nasal membrane though is an actual bodypart... covered by a thin layer of mucous which blood is still able to transfer through (just like peruvian power powder).
I went to my normal doctor, which was free (but she didn't have up-to-date info on what was needed before travelling)... and Greenshield covered a portion of the prescription.
So in terms of the cost of the vaccine, check with your drug plan to see which they cover.
You should also update your Tetanus shot if it's been more than 7 years since your last... that one is covered by drug plans.
