Help Influenza vaccine in India

I'm applying for observerships and research in the US. Many hospitals require that the observer be vaccinated for influenza prior to the start of the rotation.
I'm not able to find a drugstore or a clinic in India that sells the vaccine for the current flu season (2013-14). Could anyone help me with where I can find it, and the price of the vaccine? GSK has stopped manufacturing it in India and the Sanofi-Pastuer vaccine doesn't hit the market till late September/October. I've contacted the pharmacies of all major hospitals in my cities and none seems to know when it'll be available!
How much would it cost me to get a flu shot in the US?
