Hi, you can check prices with a chemist but I think I paid $130 for Hep A, then maybe $30 for each Hep B (there were 3 close together, then 1 was due 12 months after for longer/lifetime protection) I also paid for one doctors appointment which was approx $105 but I got around $75 back as a medicare rebate.

The first 3 Hep B vaccines need doing at short intervals and before you go ideally so best to get in early if you think you will need them :)

See a gp and get the script then shop around, there can often be a significant difference between pharmacies although some will price match if asked. It is possible to get A and B in one with twinrix vaccine although still need more than one dose.
