I have gotten a few queries regarding Yellow Fever Vaccination Center in Bangalore. Since this is not mentioned in the list of government centers in India that appears on many websites, I am posting the details here
Bengaluru (Kamataka State, India):
Public Health Institute (Opposite: S.J.Polytechnique college),
Near Atria Hotel/ K.R Circle, Bangalore-560001, Kamataka state, India.
Telephone Number from India: 080-22210248 (very near to Maharani College).
Days: Wednesday or next working day, if it is a Government Holiday.
(1) At Public Health Institute in Bengaluru, you need to register your name at least a day or two
advance by phone.
(2) Please carry your (i) Original passport (as the passport number is to be entered in the yellow card
(ii) One 2 ml Disposable Syringe (No. 24 gauze).
(iii) Yellow fever booklet (if you have got from recognized travel agency if not, will be provided at
(iv) Fees ofRs. 400-00 (Rupees Four hundred) only, for which a receipt will be issued.
(v) Vaccination will be given only for a group of 10 people as it contains 10 doses or else it is not
possible for them to open a vial for one or two persons.
Comment: In my opinion the main problems are two fold. It is inconvenient since the center is open only once a week. No one answers the phone usually, so you are never really sure if you would actually be able to get the injection if you are coming from a far off place.
The use of multi-dose vial, and the use of a generic non standard Yellow Fever vaccine are other issues that you need to be aware of.
Unfortunately, I am not aware of any private centers doing the same in Bengaluru.
Any feedback from people taking the vaccination at this (or any other center) would be appreciated
