I'm wondering if anyone knows of vaccine clinics close to Connaught Place in Delhi? I've looked at the clinics listed in other threads, but I'm hoping to find something closer to my accommodation.

I'll need Tetanus, Hep A and Typhoid vaccines.

Appreciate any advice, thanks in advance!

A program about scams on turistas around the world did one on Delhi.

The "hero" balked at actually getting the dodgy injection.

You embassy will have a list of respectable doctors.

Dang, reminds me of my last Hep A booster..

Never mind embassies, just go to a private hospital with a name like Apollo

Thank you both for the tips. I'm still wondering if there is somewhere closer to Connaught Place, preferably private clinic / hospital.

That is where an embassy list comes in handy. There are a ton of phonies out there. Incidentally, that for the US is online..

And how do you actually get such a thing? Tea with the ambassador?

Maybe it is different for USAians, but I don't think my lot offer any sort of tourist information bureau except for dire emergency.

They are high security establishments. Even getting to the gate is tough, let alone getting through it.

Oh wait, I didn't read the last line. But still, I think it is completely unnecessary. It is easy to find a major hospital in an Indian city. Apollo, Fortis.... Just go there.

By the way, one of my docs told me that the people to go to for inoculations are the child - care specialists. It's fun queuing up with the babies...

Old friend, its called the internet, something we used to use acoustical couplers to connect with at the roaring speed of 300 Baud. Its on the embassy website as a PDF file and they don't know who is foren and who is Amrikan. They still have the dinero to waste some electrons on our cousins across the pond. They have them for major cities. The last major contact I had with embassy barasahibs was when Coke was banned in India. I stole cans of it in my bulging bomber jacket from the economic attache. He said to me, you are still the same as you were as a freshman in my class. I take that as a complement. Forgot that I did attend a token interview for a visa for the memsahib so many years ago just to gupchup about our AIIS alumni. None the less, I presume that other embassies have come into the new millennium as well. I'll defer on checking the French site because my instruction was by a pair of French teenage girls. Can't remember a thing..

There are two hospitals that I know personally - One is attached to Lady Hardings Medical College, and other next to Bangla Sahib - Lohia Hospital

Not knowing where you are going to stay in Connaught Place, most half decent hotels have doctors on call.

Locate the the hospitals on google maps. Be aware, walking into ER (Emergency) or Outpatient (They call it OPD) you are using a bazooka to kill a fly. There must me GP doctors, or find a pharmacy (there are at least two I saw in the inner circle); they have Nurse Practitioners who can administer inoculations.
