Yellow Fever is a disease caused by Yellow Fever Virus. The yellow fever Virus spreads through infected mosquito bites.
Symptoms of Yellow fever include
In earliest we are going to BalramPur Hospital for yellow fever vaccination but now there is no facility to get this vaccination because they have got notice to stop this vaccination.
So can you help me out which is the new place for yellow fever vaccination in uttar pradesh.
The Yellow Fever Vaccine is effective till life of the vaccinated person. Thus the yellow fever vaccination certificate handed to you should mention validity as "life of person vaccinated".
WHO (World Health Organization) amended and extended the period of validity of Yellow Fever Vaccination Certificate to the life of the person vaccinated, which previously was 10 years only. Please check Yellow Fever Vaccination validity for more details.
Yellow fever disease has been detected mainly in certain areas of Central Africa and Northern Region of South America.
ANGOLA, BARKINAL FAED, BENIN, BURINDI, CAMEROON, CENTRAL AFRICAN REPUBLIC, CHAD, COTE D'LVOIRE, CONGO, DEMOCRITIC REPUBIC OF CONGO, EQUATORIAL GUINEA, ETHOPIA, GABON, GAMBIA, GHANA, GUINEA, GUINEA BISSAU, KENYA, LIBERIA, MALI, MAURITANIA, NIGAR, NIGERIA, RAWANDA, SAO TOME PRICIPE, SENEGAL, SOMALIA, SUDAN, TOGO, UNITED REPUBLIC OF TANZANIA, UGANDA.
South American countries
BOLIVIA, BRAZIL, COLMBIA, ECUADOR, FRENCH GUIANA, GAYANA, PANAMA, PERU, SURINAM, VENEZUELA.
This however does not mean that you do not need the Yellow Fever Vaccination if you are not traveling to these countries. Today most Country have made it mandatory to have the Yellow Fever Vaccination Certificate prior entering their territory. This is done because there may be chances of getting infected by a passenger already suffering from yellow fever at international airports or international flights. Thus you need to check carefully the travel documents required by various countries. Again different countries have different regulation for international passengers without a yellow fever vaccination certificate. India for example states (www.immigrationindia.nic.in/Health_regulation2.htm) :
" For entry into India:-
Any person, Foreigner or Indian, (excluding infants below six months) arriving by air or sea without a vaccination certificate of yellow fever will be kept in quarantine isolation for a period up to 6 days if :
>> He arrives in India within 6 days of departure/transit from a yellow fever endemic area.
>> Has come on a ship which has started from or transited at any port in a yellow fever endemic country within 30 days of its arrival in India provided such ship has not been disinfected in accordance with the procedure laid down by WHO."
Since the certificate is accepted internationally you will need to bring your original travel document e.g. your original passport.
Some yellow fever vaccination centre at airport may require you to get your traveling flight tickets too.
It is advisable to confirm with the yellow fever vaccination centre for the documents required during booking of appointment for yellow fever vaccination. Most centres require you to book prior appointment for yellow fever vaccination.
While not mandatory but personal experience suggests to bring a pen for signature and a bottle of drinking water too !
The Cost of yellow fever vaccination in government approved centre is about Rs 300/- (INR). If you purchase the yellow fever vaccination outside, the private centres may charge you 5-10 times more.
As told before yellow fever vaccination centre has to be approved by MINISTRY OF HEALTH (Government of India) in order to ensure the quality and safety of the procedures and materials employed. While I mailed both WHO and Ministry of health Department for the details, but both never replied and so I collected the details of all yellow fever vaccination centre in India from the Internet. The Procedures may vary and your reply/experience is always welcome. I am detailing the same as separate comments.
I am specifically avoiding any private centre/doctor details as Yellow Fever Vaccination Certificate issued by them may not be accepted internationally, while government approved centres are ! Please note however that the procedure to get yellow fever vaccination in any government approved centre is quite cumbersome and frustrating. Be patient during the process, its matter of a day in 10 years ! So do carry your headphones and listen to favorite songs during the long tiring que for yellow fever vaccination.
This is Dr Gaurav Gupta from TravelSafe Clinics, India. I would like to differ slightly in what has been stated above by Rishi.
We are probably India's largest Travel Health Vaccination center with multiple branches in Mumbai, Delhi & Chandigarh.
In this regard, I have provided over 10,000 vaccines of Yellow Fever to travelers across India.
While taking the vaccination at a govt center is preferable, the theoretical problem is NOT at the foreign embassies/ visa / immigration. It is a possible issue only when you return to India.
We fulfill ALL WHO NORMS so the foreign countries do not have any problems in accepting our certificates.
Warm regards and keep up the good work,
Dr Gaurav Gupta

Yellow Fever Vaccination in Mumbai
Best way to beat the queue and the haphazard way of Yellow Fever Vaccination in MMD Mumbai :
08291871016 / 07303580524
Call this guy. I don't know his name but he is the guy who serves Sugarcane Juice right outside MMD Mumbai. Call him one day before and get your name in the queue list. Pay him maybe 200. Bargain-able. Best way, because, according to this guy, the queue is formed either on the midnight of the previous day or early morning of the same day. I needed it real quick (my flight 3 days later) and this guy did it for me in a day.
All credits & thanks to Mr Utkarsh Mane for sharing his experience for getting Yellow Fever Vaccination in Mumbai.
Yellow Fever Vaccination in Kolkata
Yellow Fever Vaccination at Kolkata Marine House
Last month renewed my Yellow Fever Vaccination certificate at Kolkata Marine house.
Few points worth sharing :
Best is to come on Wednesday as monday is flooded. Better to take room around marine club and and reach Chappels at around 9:00. It would be better if you get a taxi, because MMD is long way down the main road.
I HAVE MADE G.P. RATING COURSE....BUT NOT GET THE INDIAN CDC YET IN MY HAND....I WILL GET IT SOON....BUT I WANT TO MAKE READY ALL MY DOCUMENTS....SO I WANT TO KNOW IF I HAVE NOT SUBMITTED MY CDC XEROX....THEN IT WILL TAKE MUCH MONEY OR MORE?
Hi friend, CDC is not mandatory, they recommend attaching the copy but your Passport copy is enough to get Yellow fever vaccination. They do not charge extra money for anything ! Best of luck.
Sir, Please confirm how can I get appointment in Port Health organisations-Kolkata for yellow fever vaccination as they are not picking phone.
