Comment: In my opinion the main problems are two fold. It is inconvenient since the center is open only twice 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 vaccines are other issues that you need to be aware of.
The good news is that they have an online registration system for travelers, You can try it here
Unfortunately, I am not aware of any private centers doing the Yellow Fever vaccination in an appropriate way in Hyderabad.
Any feedback from people taking the vaccination at this (or any other center) would be appreciated.
