Vaccination

Many parents have questions about which immunization schedule to follow - Indian or Japanese.
Our daughter was born in India. She was in India for first 3 months and later came to Japan.
We chose to take some vaccination in India and some in Japan. Our criterian for deciding this was :

  1. Whatever needs to be given one time and within 3 months - we will give in India
  2. Polio was yearly so we decided to give that during our yearly visit in India
  3. All others in Japan.

Our daughter had natural vaccination of chicken pox at the age of 2.5 years :-)
