My fiance went to the one that was most expensive, I think $120. The prices vary from doctor to doctor I guess. The shots you need depends on your immunization record that you need to have. Please be aware that you have to pay for any additional shot although they say one set price for the physical. We spent $250 all together. Like I said it all depends on the shots u dont have.

My husband used Andrews Memorial. The physical was $9900J. He worked on getting his shots through a local doctor will he was waiting on all the information and documents to be submitted and approved through NVC. You can get a blood test that will show what shots u are missing. Just make sure if u are getting shots prior to the medical that they are at least 30 or more days out. I have seen Medical Associates tell ppl they couldnt accept their vaccinations due to they were too close to the medical. I dont know what that has to do with anything though. But vaccinations range from 2500J to 4500J. Hope this helps!!

When my husband did his some years ago he used Medical Associates and I thought that was expensive. I had made my appointment there and then cancelled it and used Andrews Memorial.

The shots to get depends on your immunization record which you have to present. If the person had Chickenpox in the past then this shot would not be given and this shot cost $5,300 while the others were less. These must be paid in addition to the $9,500 for the medical for an adult. If the person is under 16 years it is $4,500 plus cost of shots.

Cost can be as little as just paying for the physical going up to paying $20,000+(~$300US) because people had to be fully immunized at the time of the medical. Some folks go to clinics and get the appropriate shots and cut down out of pocket expenses the day of the medical while others don't. I think I've heard of folks getting shots before hand only to have to pay again for said shots for some reason or another (maybe authorized doc didn't trust that the shots were done/done correctly). Check the CDC website if you want to know exactly as of 2012 what you need to be immunized against for immigration, what is age appropriate, what you can opt out of etc.

P.S. Being fully immunized in the 70s, 80s, 90s & 2000s may be different things. As time passes and science and medicine improves so do necessities as to what we need to protect ourselves from.
