  1. Its welcome to have Yellow Fever vaccination at Sasoon Hospital, we recently visited & the service was good and hassle free. Also you can get Oral Polio at Kalavati Mavale Municipal hospital at Narayan Peth which is a travel mandate for Kenya.

  2. Do we need to take both vaccine on the same day? Is it mandatory to take it on the same day?

  3. While it is not mandatory to take both the vaccines on the same day, it is generally more convenient to do it together.

  4. Hi .
    Please ; What is the significance of the 10 day period after getting the vaccine shot and the certificate becoming valid ? Should one wait for 10 days after the vaccine shot before commencing onward journey ?

    1. A great question :)
      The reason why the vaccine becomes valid AFTER 10 days of vaccination is that all vaccines work by stimulating the body to create immune cells. This process takes around 5-10 days. Hence full protection from the vaccine will take this long to develop.
      If you travel before this time period, you will remain at a risk for getting the disease.

  6. Hi,
    I would recommend that you read this post
    http://yellowfevervaccine.blogspot.in/2010/07/yellow-fever-vaccination-in-india.html
    for the list of differences between the govt & private sector yellow fever vaccination,
    In short Pvt clinics offer better & easier experience, WHO approved single dose French vaccine,
    While the govt vaccine is cheaper, and in rare cases has better acceptability in the Indian immmigration

    1. Dear sir my son is just 8 months 1 week old so can he be recommended to have yellow fever vaccination

      Delete
    2. Yes, kids above 6 months can be safely vaccinated.
      Most countries however, do not insist on the vaccination till the child is 1 year old

  12. Hi,
    In most cases, it does not really matter when you take the Polio drops, as there is no rule about putting you in quarantine for not having Polio drops.
    Just relax, take a deep breath, and take the drops as soon as possible :)
    Everything will be fine !
    Enjoy your trip !!

  13. Hello Doctor,
    How much would the vaccine at a private clinic cost and would the private doctor as well produce a certificate that will satisfy travel rules and regulations(like the government health center issued ?certificates)

    1. Hi,
      I am not aware of any private center in Pune that is issuing the WHO International Certificate of Vaccination.
      We have centers in Delhi & Chandigarh doing this, and it costs Rs 3200/- per person at our centers.
