Immunizations in Jamaica...Help Please!!

26 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi. For those in JAMAICA. I am trying to get my fiancé to start working on his immunizations. He lives in Negril. He went to one Dr who is trying to charge him 7500 JMD per shot he needs 9 of the 11 required. Can anyone please tell me where their fiancé went to have their vaccinations done and for what price. There is no way I can afford that. His son is current for a Jamaican child but needs a few to immigrate. that is like 600 USD just for shots and that is ridiculous. Please help If you can direct me to someone in Jamaica that is much cheaper that that or Andrews Hospital in Kingston. thanks.

Sorry I don't know of a clinic near your fiancé that would be cheaper. My fiancé only needed 2 so he just had them done at Andrew's.

Maybe he could keep checking with clinics around the area. It's difficult to get them to want to help and/or not over charge. My fiancé has since gotten his tetanus updated and got a clinic to do it for free but it took 2 days of insisting with them.

Very frustrating I know.

Does your fiance have a immunization record if he has a record he can just go with that to medical he might not require all the shots depending on age my brother went thursday and he did not have much on his record and they only gave him 2 shots the doctor will determine on how much he is to get and his son got three which him $5000 for all 3 and my son got one and it cost me $1200 for his own

He hardly has any on his record. 1 shot then they gave him HepB vac today for free but said they can not give him the others and directed him to the rip off place. Actually if Andrews is cheaper then at 30 dollar that is better than 75. will he get all of them the same day?

Tetanus :) I think that is where he went and he took the list of immunizations he needs and they said they don't do adults but child is free and he is current on his child shots for Jamaica. My fiancé only has record of 1 shot as an infant and today they give him the Hep B for free

I do not remember the exact price. I would call Andrew's and ask the fees. They will tell you what the costs are. It's been over 6mos since my fiancé had his medical.
