Infant finished his vaccinations for first 3 months in native. How safe is it to change the place of vaccination?

My baby is 100 days old now and is at native (kerala). Per doctors advice there, the earlier doses of vaccination were given at govt. PHC there (as it was suggested to be better). We were planning to bring him to Bangalore (our work place) after 3rd dose. However, we were planning to bring him earlier than 3rd dose now. Is there any risk to change the place to vaccination now. Also is there any preferrence to Govt to Pvt clinic (or viceversa) for the infant vaccination in Bangalore.

You can get your child vaccinated at bangalore as well.
regarding your issue about vaccination at private clinic or govt hospital.

in govt hospitals you will get vaccines according to EPI.,all vaccines are not available in govt set ups like,IPV,HEP A.CHICKENPOX.PNEUMOCCOCAL.HIB.MMR.TYPHOID.
so it is your personal choice and preference .I advise you to consult it with your pediatrician,

Wishing your child good health.

Thank you for your query,
There is no risk in changing the place for vaccination now as the avalable vaccines in all governament health centres are same and there is no difference.
Usually there is no such preference to governament to private, but some vaccines are not available in routine immunization schedule in National Immunization Schedule which are being given in private set up.
Hope i have answered your query.

Pediatrician, Cardiology Dr. Pradeep Kumar's  Response
There is no role of place in vaccination. You can vaccinate your child anywhere. Just make sure that you have got the immunisation card, which gives the information of the vaccines taken earlier.
In govt. PHC vaccination is done mainly according to national immunisation schedule.
Now in pvt. setup physicians usually vaccinate according to IAP schedule which covers more vaccine preventable disease. So as you are planning to vaccinate in pvt. clinic you will get an opportunity to get your baby vaccinated for some more diseases like rotavirus, pneumococcal and hemophilus.
Regarding efficacy there is no difference.
