For a trip to South America in June, we will need yellow-fever vaccination. The travel clinics and doctor’s offices we tried claim there is a shortage on yellow-fever vaccine, and therefore the prices are 250+$ (plus the cost for the visit). I have found several articles about that shortage, it seems that the only producer is behind, and that won’t change before mid of 2018.
Are there cheaper US sources known for this vaccination?
I found that it is below US$ 10 in most South American and African countries, and often even completely free for walk-ins (for example in the Bogota airport), so it seems the high price is arbitrary. However, as it needs to be administered at least ten days before travelling, it is too late to do during the trip; and flying to Bogota or such in an extra trip is not any cheaper than paying the 250$ in the US.
