Rota Virus Vaccine...

We had seen enough infomercials on TV about how useful and life saving Rota Virus Vaccine can be... Doctors say that its best to be administered within the age of 3 to 6 months.

With our little one running 6th month, we decided to go for it.

Surprisingly, its very very expensive. Imagine a single vaccine dose for One Thousand Rupees (1000). And there are two doses, the second one to be administered after two months of the first one. I just hope that the price tag on the second one doesnt come with an extra zero... :)

At this price the vaccine is going to be un-affordable to quite a lot of Indian families. I guess the government should take up some steps to bring the price down.
