Q: I have already got yellow fever vaccination but from a private hospital. I have got a certificate on a private hospital letter head with vaccination batch no. etc. Please advise if basis this certificate may I get a government certificate. If they refuse then is it ok to take another injection of yellow fever after around 13 months?
A: This is a common problem that is faced by many travelers.
You can repeat a live vaccine like Yellow fever vaccination after 1 month. The protection lasts for 10 years, so this is NOT recommended, but there is no safety issue in taking the vaccine after 13 months as in your case.
It is always preferable to search about Yellow Fever Vaccination online or call the experts at Travelsafe Clinics, India, before taking the vaccine to avoid such problems.
