I will be traveling to New Delhi from the US in early June. I need to know if immuzations are specifically required, and if so what documentation will I need to get to prove that I have them?

Thanks,
Dave

Like edwardseco says you don't have to have any shots to be allowed into India,,,,,,,,,
But it seems that from reading other posts, that people from North America get told by their health people that you need every preventive vaccine going.
Not everyone is necessary but it would do no harm to have a few basics like Hep A, Typhoid, Tetanus & Polio.
Make your own mind up on Malaria, theres plenty of threads on this site discussing the fors & againsts.
No documentary proof is required.

Well, no, actually, that's not true. In the U.S. people are generally just advised to get the four you mentioned: hepatitis A, typhoid, tetanus & polio, and the polio recommendation doesn't even apply to people over 50. The whole rabies thing that's been discussed in other posts isn't typical at all, at least not in the U.S.

We've been to India twice now and have had no problems at all. other than a strong desire to return.

They were Canadians (not saying those are paranoid by definition).

i would recommend hepa, polio (dpt) and tet.

ive heard typhoid and cholera are not so effective. if they are cheap, get them, if not dont. if not rainy season, lesser of issue.
