I'm staying in a homestay, do I need vaccines?

Page last updated 28 April 2020

The location of where your homestay is will generally determine if you need any additional vaccinations.

However, it is recommended you are protected against food and waterborne diseases, such as hepatitis A and typhoid, if you are visiting friends and/or relatives, or are staying in a homestay. This is due to the nature of traditional style cooking and the sanitation practices in India.
