Immunisation schedule provides a comprehensive list of essential vaccines

The Federation of Obstetric and Gynaecological Societies of India (FOGSI) has unveiled a comprehensive immunisation schedule for women that provides a comprehensive list of essential vaccines that adult women should receive, and the recommended frequency of each vaccine.

FOGSI and MSD Pharma have collaborated to raise awareness about women’s immunisation and help prevent vaccine-preventable diseases in women across India.  

A report highlights that women spend 25% more time in poor health compared to men. Vaccination can help change this and safeguard women from vaccine-preventable diseases, contributing to an improved quality of life.

Dr Jaydeep Tank, President, FOGSI said, “The launch of FOGSI’s updated immunisation schedule for women represents a significant milestone in the preventive health for women. This comprehensive resource will provide a clear actionable roadmap to both women and doctors resulting into an increased awareness about vaccination." 

Rehan A. Khan, Managing Director of MSD India Region said, “Managing one’s health can be challenging without proper information, but with tools such as the immunisation calendar, it can be made simpler. We urge all women to consult their healthcare professional to understand the steps they can take to better protect themselves."
