innoculations for india

Discussion in 'Teaching abroad' started by v12, Apr 3, 2012.

    Does anyone know about which innoculations will be necessary for teaching in Bangalore?
    A map I found on the web suggested that this area isn't a malaria hotspot
    Do I simply ask my local GP or is it more complicated than this?

    Perfect timing! I've just been reading the chart in our school clinic and it suggests the following for India
    Hep A
    Hep B
    There may be more - not sure how old that chart is
    Before I moved to Egypt, I just went to my local GP who made sure all mine were up to date and provided me with a booklet which you keep with your passport to show you are sorted.
    He didn't charge me as it was looked upon as "preventative medicine". I bet that's changed!

    Wow. Let's hope they're all to be taken on a lump of sugar ... 'cos I love injections, me [​IMG]
  4. I was just at my UK clinic this morning getting my "letter of good health" arranged and I asked about updating my inoculations. Looks like Tetanus, Hep A is covered under NHS but Hep B, Cholera and a few others aren't. I just filled in a form and the nurse will ring me back to make the appointment and administer what they think necessary.
