Myself and my boyfriend left the UK in April 2012, freshly stabbed with every vaccination we needed before starting our Asian adventure! We have been in Australia for 5 months now and are about to head back into Asia for a second tour. All of our vaccines are still in good working order but we want to get boosters for Hep A and Hep B so that they last for 10 years instead of 3 (to get our moneys worth!). We looked into getting the boosters in Australia but laughed off this idea after being quoted $230...I think not! So we have decided to get them done when we arrive in Phuket, our first destination in Asia. We want to see a doctor to get our vaccines and also to get a prescription for our anti-malarial medication, as we will need this elsewhere in Asia). I contacted the 'Phuket Hospital', which is part of the Bangkok Hospital Medical Centre, and they quoted 4,200THB (about $136 AUD) for 2 x Hep A and 2 x Hep B vaccines excluding hospital fee (150THB/visit) and doctor fee of around 1,000THB...so around 5350 THB ($173 AUD) total (anti-malarials will be extra). I have seen some bits and bobs online that suggest these boosters can be done for a lot less than the above quote but I need some help! Does anyone have any experience with this? A reliable hospital in Phuket that you would recommend? Any help would be very much appreciated. Thank you!
PS we haven't booked our accommodation yet so can be flexible with this for doctor location.
