Brief Answer:
Go for the one that your local pediatrician has

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for asking on HealthcareMagic.

I have gone carefully through your query and understand your concerns. Please note that the vaccines need to be properly preserved through cold chain procedure. I understand that you have done your research and have come up with multiple brands. But not all doctors have all the brands with them and most of them usually stick to one particular brand. You therefore need to get in touch with the pediatrician who would be administering the vaccine. Go for the brand he has with him. That will ensure that the vaccine is effective. Do not try to purchase any other brand from the market as its efficacy would not be ensured.

Let me know if I could help further.
