Travelers, both children and adults are advised to review their vaccination history with their doctor prior to traveling, and undergo the necessary vaccinations. There is no single schedule for the administration of vaccines to travelers. Each schedule must be personalized according to the individual travelerís immunization history, the countries or places to be visited, the type and duration of travel, planned activities and the amount of time available before departure.

The only vaccine required by international Health Regulations is yellow fever vaccination for travel to certain countries in sub-Saharan Africa and tropical South America. The international yellow fever vaccination certificate becomes valid 10 days after vaccination and remains valid for a period of 10 years.
AllForKids Cochin provides most age appropriate vaccinations.
