    Hi Ramya,

    First you consult the child doctor, they will give vaccine card from 0 months to 5 years old. At what time, what injection do they need is available in that card. pls consult and get vaccine card, follow the vaccine as per age. When u go to hospital pls show your vaccine card is provided in India and get back new vaccine card from ur place.

    Hi,

    If your baby is born in India, you will find 2 doses for measles, 9 months & 15 months.

    But in UAE, they give it as a one dose at 1 year.

    If you want to take the vaccination in doctor's presence, try Anjana Sajith (Prime medical center). She is good.

    Mohan Kamat(Zulekha Hospital) is also very experienced.. But vaccination over there is done in nursing room..
