Early administration of hepatitis A vaccine and measles, mumps, rubella vaccine to children aged 6 to 11 months prior to international travel is noted. The influenza recommendations now include live attenuated influenza vaccine as well as information about administering vaccine to egg-allergic children.
The immunization of an adult depends on the previous immunization received in childhood. Unlike the Pediatric Immunization Guidelines, given by the Indian Academy of Pediatrics and the National Immunization Programs,[ 1 , 2 ] the guidelines for vaccination in healthy adults vary from region to region. Hepatitis B vaccine is a recombinant vaccine. Plasma- derived vaccine is not used due to risk of transmission of infections. Booster is not needed in immunocompetent adults.
The immunisations range from birth through to adulthood. All vaccines listed in the NIP Schedule are free. Eligibility for free vaccines under the NIP is linked to eligibility for Medicare benefits. To get the best possible protection, make sure you have your immunisations on time, every time. The NIP Schedule below shows which vaccines you should get and when.
