In India, there are number of vaccines given to a child since birth right upto the age of five years and each vaccine has a different schedule and dosage. To complicate further every vaccine has multiple brand names which determines its market cost. There isn’t a proper site which lists out the cost according to the Immunization schedule.

Hence to ease out this nerve wracking job of calculating the cost of vaccination each time you visit a doctor, I have compiled a list of various vaccines with their brand names, cost given at each week. So do download the file and relax!!!

  5. The cost also varies depending on the amount vaccine in a vial bought. Single vaccine vial will cost more, hence cost of some of the vaccines hasbeen mentioned as single dose or multiple dose.
  6. The choice of DPT combination vaccine may change the immunization schedule. To know how, first read my post: Painful versus painless vaccines – Article on different DPT combination vaccines
  7. Please also download the Recent immunization schedule by IAP -2014, which I have simplified and colour coded from this linkIMPORTANT: Indian Immunization schedule recommended by Indian Academy of Pediatrics (with 2014 modifications)

  9. Do consult your doctor thoroughly before every vaccination.
