|Subject: Re: Inoculation Info and Travel Health for India?|
My husband and I have been to India three times in the last ten years and plan to go again in December. We always make sure we have the recommended shots (Typhoid/Tetanus, Polio, Hepatitis A, Meninococcus and Gamma Globulin) and we take malaria pills (palandrin). We drink only bottled water, tea or coffee and also use bottled water for brushing our teeth. We try to eat vegetarian food as much as possible. We have had no serious health problems during our trips, although I did get food poisoning once from eating an ice cream. However, I have eaten ice cream many other times and been fine. Please let me know if you need further information.
I should add that we do not use organized tours. We make our own arrangements, with the help of friends in south India.
