It was certainly a surprise for me! I recently had to pay for yellow fever and typhus vaccines and antimalarial medications for my family of four. When I was originally planning our trip, I had naively assumed this would be a minimal cost, but it was over $1000 (not covered by insurance). I used our county travel clinic because I assumed it would be the cheapest, but I may have done better shopping around. A friend in California said hers was free with her insurance, and I don't remember my last typhus vaccine costing an arm and a leg. Anyway, just something to be aware of.
Cost of immunizations may be higher than you think
