Hello,
I would like to get my Yellow Fever vaccination as well as buy my anti-malarial pills in a Quito hospital. Is this easy to do? Are there doctors that speak English, are the hospitals clean (I was considering Hospital Metropolitano)? Do you have any idea of the prices, or the speed of service?
Thank you for any and all help!
Alina

Alina,

I haven't tried myself, but there appears to be an international hospital in Quito as well. I'd go there if I were you; you probably pay more (but still less than at home), but for my health, I'd gladly do so.

Did you consider by the way that both YF and prophylaxis need to be started quite some time before you leave?
