Baby Vaccination Price List & Schedule Chart in India

Hey parents, baby vaccination is an important schedule recommended worldwide for protection against known diseases. I have made a chart of immunization schedule which I followed for my baby (and plan to follow). I have listed the name of vaccination and its price along with the baby’s age at which it is recommended.

I got a vaccination card from the hospital and it has mentioned all the important vaccinations’ schedule. If you have not got one then you can either get it from your baby’s doctor or check out the schedule at the end of the page (it is from CDC US).

NOTE:

  • This information is just for reference purpose, so please consult your baby’s doctor for the actual vaccination schedule.
  • The vaccine price varies with the vaccine brand. Also, almost all doctors have set their own price for each vaccination but they are in the close price range. Please ask the doctor vaccine’s brand name after the vaccination so that he understands that you know about the vaccine cost structure and does not try to fool you.
  • The doctor might or might not charge extra as consultation charges.
  • Two Pneumococcal Vaccine options were told to us – PREVENAR-13 (Rs.3800) and Synflorix (Rs.1800). Developed countries use only PREVENAR-13. Prevnar 13 protects against 13 types of pneumococcal bacteria and Synflorix protects against 10 types. There is no clinical data available to prove which of the two is better in terms of efficacy. If you are on a budget then some pediatricians also recommend 3 shots of Synflorix and the PCV booster shot of PREVENAR-13.
  • The prices in the vaccination chart are for the year 2018

Other vaccines recommended are:

FLU – Influenza vaccine against influenza virus infections (FLU, H1N1 Swine Flu) – 2 doses after 6 months of age at 1 month interval, then yearly. Doctors charge around Rs.800 to Rs.1200 per dose. FLU vaccine is available from Sanofi India Ltd in tow variants – one is 0.25 ml Vaxigrip Paediatric Injection at price of Rs.805 and the other is 0.5 ml Vaxigrip Adult Injection for Rs.885. Flu vaccines from some other brands are:

  • Influgen Rs.790 – Lupin Ltd
  • Influvac – Rs.810 – Abbott
  • Nasovac-S – Rs.800 – Cipla Ltd
  • VaxiFlu – Rs.1040 – Zydus Cadila

Men A – It is a vaccine against meningococcal infections and is recommended in immune compromised children or when there is a disease outbreak in the community; single dose above the age of one year.

Others, if required – Cholera vaccine, Rabies vaccine, Japanese encephalitis vaccines

Glossary:

IPV = Injectable Polio Vaccine
OPV = Oral polio Vaccine (oral polio drops, also given in “Pulse Polio Programme” in India )
BCG – Bacillus Calmette–Guérin vaccine against tuberculosis.
DPT/DTaP = Diphtheria, Pertussis, Tetanus Vaccine
HiB = Hemophilus Influenza B Vaccine
HepA = Hepatitis A
HepB = Hepatitis B
MMR = Measles, Mumps, Rubella Vaccine
PCV = Pneumococcal Vaccine
Varicella = Chicken Pox

Combination vaccines are available for DPT + Hepatitis B (quadrivalent vaccine), DPT + Hepatitis B + Hib vaccine (pentavalent vaccine), and DPT + HiB + Hep B + IPV. These can be used to decrease the number of pricks being given to the baby and to decrease the number of clinic visits.

Q: What is the difference between DTwP, DTaP and Tdap?

A: DTP(or DPT) vaccine is a combination of three inactivated bacterial vaccines: diphtheria, pertussis and tetanus. There are many different forms and combinations of these vaccines licensed for use in the United States. Some versions of the vaccine are only appropriate for adults and adolescents (Tdap, Td and TT). Various versions of the vaccine for infants and young children include DTwP (whole cell pertussis), which is no longer used in the developed countries; DTaP (acellular pertussis) which is currently used for babies in developed countries; and DT (diphtheria, tetanus).

Painless Vs Painful DPT vaccine  – DPT(or DTP) vaccine is available as DTwP (pertussis whole cell form) and DTaP (pertussis acellular form). The DTaP vaccine, sometimes called painless DPT, has fewer side effects(fever, pain) but is also considered a little less effective and is costly. But please note that the old DTwP is already replaced with DTaP in all the developed countries and is safe to use. We used DTwP as DTaP was not available in the market, and I think DTwP is good enough, no need for DTaP. In terms of pricing, including the doctor fee, DTwP costs around Rs.1000 (EasyFive/PentavacSD) and DTaP cost around Rs.3000 (Pentaxim). Please note that the DTaP(Pentaxim) also covers IPV(polio) whereas DTwP(or DPT) does not. So additional IPV will be required with DTwP.

Human Papillomavirus (HPV) – Human papillomavirus (HPV) is the most common sexually transmitted infection. Symptoms may include warts on the genitals or surrounding skin. The HPV vaccine is strongly recommended for all as it prevents the HPV strains that are most likely to cause genital warts and cervical cancer.

HPV vaccines come in two options – Bivalent, for two types of virus and Quadrivalent, for preventing 4 types of virus.

  • Human Papillomavirus Quadrivalent (Types 6, 11, 16, and 18) vaccine is Gerdasil
  • Human Papillomavirus Bivalent (Types 16 and 18) vaccine is Cervarix.

I personally think that, unless there is some medical history of HPV in a family, the Cervarix vaccine is good enough for preventing HPV. I myself have followed a catch-up schedule of Cervarix (3 doses).

  1. Thanks to Indian Beauty Hub for this information. It’s an essential information for every parents.

  2. What if doctor’s are charging more (or too much more) than the stated prices? What are our options?

    1. Private doctors always give you an option of paid vaccine. Please, Visit the nearest Government hospital and get all vaccines at free of cost. Do not promote corruption by way of visiting such doctors who advise to go for paid vaccines. Government spend millions of rupees over this issue.
      Thanks!

    2. You may opt for other doctor. I have seen Many doctors in Metropolitan cities charging huge and also not telling about other cost effective option. Afterall it’s necessary to give all vaccines than to give costly one.

      1. Doctors may charge their consultation fees that is why it seems costlier than MRP. Also prices of vaccines changes frequently but not by more than 100 to 200 Rs. Here the writer stated all charges near about their MRP and excluding consultation charges.

  5. Nice information thanks,
    Vaccine labels which are on the viles surface will be pasted on our vaccination schedule sheet in hospital is the good practice, ask to do your doctor for future reference.

    1. Painfull and painless catagory is only applicable for DPT/ PENTA vaccine and not for all vaccines.
      As all vaccines excluding nasovac and Rotavirus are injectables, causes certain amount of pain but not enduration. Fever may or may not follow vaccination.

  6. God bless u and thanks for the information.
    In some hospitals they cheat like anything for money .You had given clear cut explanation about vaccination so that we can be aware of vaccination and beware of some hospitals

  7. I urge to the people who would like to have vaccine for their babies. Please, Visit the nearest Government hospital and avail this facility at free of cost. No need to pay according to the chart mentioned above. Since these prices are nothing but to loot the Indian people. Government spend millions of rupees to vaccinate the kids. Please, Do not buy any vaccine from the private hospitals. Doing this, You promote corruption.
    Thanks!

  8. You may opt for other doctor. I have seen Many doctors in Metropolitan cities charging huge and also not telling about other cost effective option. Afterall it’s necessary to give all vaccines than to give costly one.
