Would an adult travelling to India (will be there for 6 days) need to get a flu shot (he would not otherwise get the flu shot)?  Also, how necessary is it for him to take the malaria pills before he leaves?  I think they are called malarone and are preventative.  He is there for business but is planning to see some of the great sites as well.

Thanks a lot!!

there would be no increased risk of the flu beyond the normal risk of living here.  as for malaria, I'm not sure - you'd have to look at the CDC website on that.
