immunizations

  1. 0
    Looking for recommendations on a good place to get immunized for someone whose insurance does not cover these:

    My doctor's office doesn't do all of the required immunizations and recommended Travel and Immunizations in NW Portland, but they seem expensive. $60/visit + $80/MMR, $90/Hep B x 3, $66/Tetanus, $120/Varicella + $46/admin fee.

    Rite-aid in the Pearl also does immunizations, for almost the same price: $100/Hep B, $86/MMR, $53/Tenanus...no Varicella.

    Have you called your health department? If you're in school this term, or were last term many times your college health clinic will give inexpensive immunizations or PPD's. As an example, the PPD at my school cost like $8.

    I just started on mine last week. I went through the Multnomah Co. Health Dept.

    The prices were the best I could find without spending too much time shopping around for immunizations costs. The only drawback is that they only do Tues and Wed appts. And they do have the varicella.

    I'm getting mine through Washington County Health Dept. here in Beaverton. They use a sliding scale for fees - but even full price it's better than what you quoted above. $60 for each Hep B, $30 for the TB skin test. No office visit charges or administrative fees.

    Thank you! I will check it out.
