Please be sure check the CDC Website for India for updated information about vaccinations and health concerns, and check with your medical provider or travel clinic about your individual requirements.
The CDC recommends that all travelers be up-to-date on routine vaccinations 4-6 weeks before travel. In addition, the CDC recommends a measles vaccination for:
- People 12 months old or older, with no evidence of immunity or no written documentation of any doses: 2 doses of MMR vaccine before travel. The 2 doses must be given 28 days apart.
- People 12 months old or older who have written documentation of 1 dose and no other evidence of immunity: 1 additional dose before travel, at least 28 days after the previous dose.
They also recommend that most travelers be vaccinated for Hepatitis A and Typhoid. Please be sure check the CDC Website for India for full information about vaccinations and health concerns.
*There is no risk of yellow fever in India. The government of India requires proof of yellow fever vaccination only if you are arriving from a country with risk of yellow fever.
Note: Zika virus is a possible risk in India. Because Zika infection in a pregnant woman can cause serious birth defects, women who are pregnant should carefully consider travel to India. All travelers should strictly follow steps to prevent mosquito bites and sexual exposure to Zika virus during and after the trip.
