The cost of the HPV vaccine in India can vary depending on the brand and the healthcare provider. Generally, the cost of a single dose of the HPV vaccine ranges from Rs. 2,000 to Rs. 4,000. The vaccine is given in a series of two or three doses, depending on the age of the person receiving it, so the total cost of the vaccination course can range from Rs. 4,000 to Rs. 12,000.
However, the Indian government also provides the HPV vaccine free of cost to girls between the ages of 9 and 14 years through its Universal Immunization Program (UIP). In some states, the vaccine is also available for free to boys in the same age group. It is recommended to check with the nearest government health center or a private healthcare provider for more information on the availability and cost of the HPV vaccine.
