Taking a toddler without tyhpoid injection.
 
Hi

My wife and I have been to India twice before and travelled quite a lot totalling 2.5 months and we plan to return next year for 2 weeks with a 4 year old and a 14 month old. Our itinerary will consist of Delhi, Amritsar, Agra and Udaipur.

The 14 month old will not have had his Typhoid injection (as he will be under the age of 2) however we plan on only feeding him food from jars and powdered milk we have bought over (lightening the load for things to take back :D) , bottled water and fruit in a skin, therefore reducing the risk.

Has anyone ever taken a toddler without said injection?

Cheers

Welcome to Indiamike! :D

If 2 is the minimum age, then I'm sure that people will have done.

But, even those of us who are willing to pontificate about adult health issues hesitate to do so where children, especially young children, are concerned. The answer is... to ask your doctor. Your NHS websites give a lot of useful travel information (I've long been a fan of their malaria booklet), but, at a quick glance, I couldn't see anything like What if I'm taking a <2-yr-old anyway?

Thanks :)

Yeah we have looked however as you say it doesn't mention <2s - Hoping to get some first hand advice on here.

We are happy to do it, we are confident that he will only eat what we bring or deem safe, just wondering if anyone has any experience.

thanks :)

Its a risk but lots have done so. We wanted to show him to the relatives as he was and is the only male offspring in his generation so far. I had seen so many disconnected Desi off spring abroad and want to avoid that. Carrying the food is a good idea. Yeah it weighs one down. Ultimately its a risk to be weighed. We didn't travel too much. Still, moments will happen such as teething on the window bars of a train. Can't use enough Dettol I suppose:)..
