Typhoid Vaccine: When to give during a year?

Our NGO- Mission India Foundation (www.mifusa.org) has taken up another vaccine to make it accessible to kids in rural parts of India. We have the target to immunize 5000 kids and teenagers (2-18 years age) in the year 2011. We are using a Intra-muscular vi-polysaccharide vaccine for the purpose. My question is:
Given the seasonality of Enteric Fever in India, should Typhoid vaccine be offered throughout the year or during the period of maximal propensity, ie, summer and monsoon season?
