My kitten needs her 2nd set of vacs, but...

I'm not sure how much it'll cost me.
( She's 14 weeks as of right now )

Do you guys know how much it roughly cost for 2nd set of vacs?
& um, it also says it needs 2nd deworming. I wonder why it need
2nd deworming... even though my kitten stays indoor all the time.
Also, after calling a local vet, it says deworming costs 40 dollars...
Is that about right? or what? and do you guys suggest that I should
deworm my kitten ?

I don't know. It depends on where you are and which vaccines you're getting. If you're strapped for cash, I'd check out vaccine clinics in your area. Even my vet does a vaccine clinic once or twice a month. It's usually much cheaper. I don't recommend in in lieu of an exam but, if your kitty got checked out 3 weeks ago, and there's no other reason for her to be seen by the vet...it's worth looking into.
As for the deworming, yes you must have the second dose done. The first dose kills the adult worms but does not get the eggs. They take about 3 weeks to hatch, thus the second dose. If you don't do it on time, you will probably have to start from scratch.
