Is it expensive? Yes, very. However this is one place where I'm ok with that expense. There is no reason to give him more vaccine when he's more than two times the "safe" level.
I know there are people who don't agree with this position, and that's cool (not even all of the vets there do!) but always remember that it's an option.
