Latest Indian Academy of Pediatrics (IAP) recommendations 2011 for vaccinating children in India

Iap Guide Book on Immunization Iap Immunization Time Table 2011

Finally we have the latest guidelines from the Indian Academy of Pediatrics, the official & the largest body of Pediatricians in India.
Unfortunately, in India a lot of Pediatricians, especially from the smaller cities and towns seem to be following somewhat random schedules, that are not only outdated but may lead to decreased vaccine efficacy.
I would encourage parents to download this chart, and use this as a guide for getting their children vaccinated in India
