Hello I've scoured the forums for the answer to this question but have not found it, please forgive me if it's been answered before. Without getting into too much discussion, I just need to know:

WHERE CAN I GET POLIO & TYPHOID VACCINATIONS IN DELHI??

Thank you in advance for putting my mind at ease...

Vaccinations

I think you should make an appointment with a doctor in his office. Sometimes the crowds at hospitals can be a bit intimidating (although as I found out at the eye clinic in Delhi, they're not all patients. Sometimes half the family comes along with a little kid who's afraid of injections and doctors - that's nice for the kid but confusing for you).

Vaccine Delhi

I thought there might be a special clinic just for this purpose, but it seems any doctor or hospital will do. This all has to be done on my very first day (my doctor here miscalculated my vaccine schedule). Wish me luck please!

When Mrs. N had to have an anti-tetanus injection, following an injury, the doc told her to get the stuff and the syringe from a pharmacy, take it to a hospital and get a nurse to give the injection.

So when I say it's just like anywhere else... It is, but with Indian overtones!

Fix up an appointment with:

Max Hospital - Pitampura
HB Twin Towers,
Wazirpur District Centre,
Pitampura,
New Delhi 110034.
Phone : +91 11 2735 1844

If you are in central Delhi, take a Metro train from the nearest Metro station, such as Rajiv Chowk in Connaught Place.
Get off at NETAJI SUBASH PLACE, RING ROAD STATION.

Website: http://www.maxhealthcare.in/corporat...tals/index.asp

It is a reputed hospital in Delhi.

Does anyone have any idea how much vaccinations in Delhi will cost? I'll most likely need the works - Hepatitis A, Polio, Tetnus-Diphtheria and Typhoid (already have Hepatitis B).

The only problem is, I'll be in Delhi for less than a week initially (it would be possible to return around 30-45 days later). I'm pretty certain that Hepatitis A and Polio are vaccinations that require a series of injections. And I know for sure that Japanese encephalitis is a minimum 2 part series spread over two weeks (recommended 3 part series over one month if not short on time). I guess this could be a problem.....does anyone see any way around this, or could you correct me if I'm wrong? Can the vaccination series be given at different hospitals throughout India? If specifics help, I'll be arriving in Delhi, spending less than a week in the city, and then moving on to Ladakh for 30-45 days. Maybe I could split the vaccinations that require a series of injections between a hospital in Delhi and a hospital in Leh? Any insight would be appreciated.



Thanks so much,

-Dave

Why would it be a problem?

Just make sure that you get a written note of what you have had and when as you go from hospital to hospital.

Thanks Nick - I really didn't know. I'm not all that familiar with the procedure here in the United States, let alone in India.

Now I'm wondering mostly about the cost. Does anyone have any experience with vaccinations in Delhi, or India in general - any ideas on costs (without insurance)?

Yes you can split your shots between different hospitals in different cities, as per your immunization schedule.
Don't worry about costs - all medicines including vaccines are much cheaper in India than in USA.

Thanks for the input Sanjay. That may just be what I'll do, since I'll most likely have access to Leh at any point in time throughout my Ladakh stay.

When you say "don't worry about costs" in regards to vaccination fees, do you mean that I could get them all for less than, say, 2500 rupees, more..less...I'm not sure what "dont worry" means in your mind. To a poor man on a tight budget already, it's difficult to really put that into perspective.

Thank ya!

I'm glad Max went fine for you and you got a good service at a reasonable price.

Do give some directions here as to how you reached Max from central Delhi as it is a little away from the city center. How was your experience commuting on the Delhi Metro. Did you face any difficulties?
This may be of help to others on IM.
