After reaching the centre please register your name in the registration  register and fill up the Consent Form for vaccination. The vaccination will start after 12 PM.


The validity of the Yellow Fever Vaccination starts after the 10th day of the vaccination to  life of the person vaccinated.


Any number of different types of live vaccines can be given within a time frame of 24 hours. However in case, 24 hours have already passed since the administration of first live vaccine (e.g. MMR), a different type of live vaccine (e.g. yellow fever) should be given after 4 weeks. This is based on the scientific studies which have shown reduced immune response when two different types of live vaccines are given at a gap of more than 24 hours but less than 4 weeks. However, a second live vaccine which is of the same type as the first one can be given, even at a gap of 24 hours and above, without affecting immunogenicity.


In case a person gets vaccinated from private agency, he or she should be revaccinated from authorized YFV centre, for provision of yellow fever vaccine certificate. This revaccination can be done anytime irrespective of time elapsed since last vaccinated


A waiting period of 30 minutes post immunization to monitor adverse reaction is recommended
