Vaccination FAQs - Which Immunization schedule to follow in India ?

Dear Concerns,
What is the standard vaccination chart to be followed for the child, as i have seen many hospital have there own vaccination chart than others.
Please help

Ans. You are quite correct in asking this question. Unlike other developed countries, we do not have a single publicized schedule . Also the govt schedule does not provide comprehnsive protection for everyone.
The recommended schedule is from IAP - Indian Academy of Pediatrics - the official body of the Pediatricians in India. This is issued yearly. 
This is the schedule recommended in 2014.

And this is the latest guidelines issued for 2015

There are no recommendations for 2016 as yet.

Warm regards
Dr Gupta
