There is a severe shortage of Yellow Fever Vaccine in India in the government as well as private sector leading to a lot of difficulty for travelers going to Africa & South America.
We had been getting reports of shortage from Ahmedabad, Chennai & Bangalore, but now the vaccines seems to have disappeared completely from all over India.
We have been unable to procure the vaccine in private sector from the vaccine manufacturer (Sanofi Pasteur) as well. According to highly placed sources in the comapny who declined to be identified, the shortage is the result of government of India delaying the sanction of the new batch of Yellow Fever Vaccine. According to them, the vaccine is likely to remain unavailable till at least May end/ June.
Our stock is likely to get exhausted very soon. We will intimate further availability of the Vaccine as soon as we get fresh stock.
