Remember, the vaccines required by immigration are not included in the $350 charge. After your first visit you will know what extra vaccines you may need. Please call your health insurer to see if these vaccines are covered; if you lack insurance, you will be responsible for the full cost. We strongly encourage you to obtain your vaccination records from your country; it may save you some money. We may be able to give some of the vaccinations on site. But you may need to go elsewhere. Also remember, this is not a one-step process, you may need up to 3 visits. The length of the process may depend on your health, and your individual circumstances.
