What kind of vaccines ? Flu shots ? Tetanus ? Some vaccines would require your doctor's prescription.

Vaccines

Lucy, what vaccinations do you want/need?

First, the list, and then stuff like how long it takes before you get the benefit. So, for each disease you need to do this research.

Nycank mentions tetanus. My IANAD[octor] view is everyone everywhere should be protected from tetanus, because it is a risk everywhere, eg your garden. And hey, just one jab every 10 years!

As to the rest, yes you can get in India. And it will probably be cheaper.

1. You have to take time to find recommended doctor or hospital..

2. Potential problem with storage. Many vaccines must be kept cool. There may be power cuts and fridges may not work for a while. Hospitals should have backup generators. Small clinics might not.

The combo Hep Vacc, highly recommended, is available in India? It costs as in all vaccines in the US a bundle now and has to be taken over a period of time..

I remember a time when it was a foreigners' thing. As in recall questions like "Does one still needs an Aids-test result to get a visa?" But the need was before I ever came here.

Correct ! I know when GoI implemented it and then six months later withdrew it. It again snuck 2.0 in, and then withdrew it quietly.

It's much more practical to get vaccines a long time before arrival in-country, because most vaccines take time or even multiple dosage to take effect.

Some, like the flu jab I just took, actually comes with a gentle reminder from the doctor saying you will have some mild symptoms of flu afterwards.

Some helpful websites giving info on

1) What are the recommended vaccines for India
https://wwwnc.cdc.gov/travel/destina...vel-single-001

2) A Singapore healthcare site giving detailed information on the types of vaccinations available, and the schedules needed for each
