I don't know that I would trust even a "good" hospital here to have a "good" vaccine all the time, unless the vaccine was developed outside the country. I'm sure in almost all cases the vaccines would be fine, but there is enough corruption and such here to make certain critical things suspect.InjuredBadly said:It is incredible that those who are so untigovernment in the US are bringing their unfounded fears to Argentina. Vaccines are safe if properly controlled for purity. Get them in a safe hospital, so pay a little, you would not get them free in the States, that is for sure, but if you are not traveling to infected areas do not get them. I don't know what "damage" you are talking about.
You CAN get them free in the US, you just have to wait a bit for all the others who are getting them free. I've been down on my luck before and there are a number of free clinics that give vaccinations (at least in Texas). And I would trust those as much or more than any clinic here regarding the purity.
BTW - I'm not "anti-vaccine", I'm just "don't believe everything doctors tell you." There are dangers with vaccines, they are just very miniscule. But they do exist.
I had a Yellow Fever vaccine in the mid-90s when I was traveling to India and Africa. Supposedly I am good for 30-35 years, but most countries who require the vaccine require it every ten years. I don't like that. Seems an overkill to me and I am very suspicious of doctors' organizations that push this kind of stuff way more often than needed, for whatever reason.
