What do you need to prepare for the next Indian trip?

The Taj Mahal, Hampi, the Himalayans and the Caves of Ajanta are just the beginning for amazing sights in India. For thousands of years, the subcontinent has been the cradle of one of the most amazing cultures to visit.

Every year, tourists from around the globe and Canada flock to India to see its amazing sights and sounds. Whether you are a spiritual pilgrim, a business executive or an adventure seeker, India is sure to have something for you.

And do you need travel vaccination?

Yes, some vaccines are recommended or required for India. The PHAC and WHO recommend the following vaccinations for India: hepatitis A, hepatitis B, typhoid, cholera, yellow fever, Japanese encephalitis, rabies, meningitis, polio, measles, mumps and rubella (MMR), Tdap (tetanus, diphtheria and pertussis), chickenpox, shingles, pneumonia and influenza.

Some mosquito-borne diseases are also prevalent in India including:

• Malaria– Antimalarial medication is recommended for many regions in India. Speak with a travel health specialist to learn if these are right for your itinerary.

• Dengue Fever– Another mosquito-borne disease, dengue affects millions each year. Unfortunately, there is no vaccination against dengue approved in the United States. Make sure you take precautions against mosquitoes like using repellents and mosquito netting. Fortunately, the Zika virus has yet to arrive in India.
