Most international medical clinics provide vaccinations that are imported or locally sourced but do remember to check expiration dates. It is recommended that you follow your country's vaccination schedule or the schedule provided by the American-based Center for Disease Control and Prevention (www.cdc.gov/vaccines/schedules). In addition, doctors recommend that children must be vaccinated against certain diseases that are more prone in China, such as Japanese encephalitis. This is the first Chinese-produced vaccine to be prequalified by WHO. Note that vaccinations are not cheap in China and are not always covered by insurance. Hong Kong clinics provide the same at more than half of the cost. Alternatively, if baby is born in China, you can visit the local community he lth centers who provide the most basic of shots. Be prepared to take an interpreter if language is a barrier.
