How much do vaccinations for Vietnam cost?
Medicare will only cover your GP consultation cost in most cases, but some private travel clinics you may have an out of pocket expense of approximately $50. Medicare will not cover the vaccinations, and vaccination prices vary a lot.
The average cost of a single travel vaccine can vary between $45-$85.The general advice is to allocate about $300-$600 per person (including a travel medicine kit) for average trips to the more remote areas.
If you have private healthcare, you may find they will cover some costs, but this varies from one company to another – check with your personal insurer for more details.
