Medical Travel: Arriving at the CIWEC Clinic in Kathmandu, Nepal

One of the main reasons we traveled to Nepal in 2014 was to get rabies vaccinations since we were planning to travel to a number of other third world countries in the future. At the CIWEC clinic in Kathmandu, we were able to get rabies shots for $40 per shot (there were three in a series) as opposed to $300 per shot. Also, in 2014, there was a new rabies vaccine being marketed in the US that had never been tested on kids. We opted for the Nepal version of the vaccine that was tried and true for Lydian (who was 14 years old). In this video, you can see the outside of the CIWEC building as we drive up. It’s clean on the outside as well as on the inside. It’s an excellent travel clinic. We had a spectacular experience going there. The doctor’s attentiveness and the quality of the care was so much better overall than US healthcare and medical clinics it was sort of surreal.
