The vaccine is not compulsory. However, if meeting the cost is not a problem with you, getting this vaccination done may be in the interest of the child. The cost is decided by the clinic you are attending, and you may ask them about the cost beforehand. It may even be possible to get this information form the concerned clinic telephonically.

Rotarix vaccine is really a good one. But it is not compulsory. I gave it to my son who is 7 months now. The vaccine cost will come around Rs 1000, it may vary according to the hospitals. this vaccine is to control Diarrhea.
