New Yellow Fever Vaccination Center in JJ Hospital Mumbai - some Traveler tips about immunization for Polio & Yellow Fever

There is a new center in mumbai at JJ Hospital. However not enough information is available about the same.
Here are some Traveler tips about immunization for Polio & Yellow Fever at JJ Hospital Mumbai.

"The OPV is available at J J Hospital, Byculla. Following is the process...
Visit the OPD Department of the Hospital (Entry through Gate No. 6 of the Hospital)From the Central Counter (It is right in the middle with many Windows. Even though it is not a room, it is Numbered as Room Nos. 11) take a Slip for OPV by showing your passport and Pay Rs. 10.
After Taking the Slip Go to Room Nos 13 and Visit the 1st Room on the Right which is marked for OPV and other Immunization. (Do not worry for the Line outside Room 13. It is for something else).
Show your slip to the Guys at Computer and follow as directed from thereon.
Please note timings are from 9.30 to 12.30 only. You need to reach hospital before 12.00 to complete the process within the time.
Comments by another traveler:1. Rs. 10 is the fee for 1st time registration as an OPB patient. This has to be done on Window No. 11 of Room No. 11.2. The immunization is now done in Room No. 50.3. You can get both Yellow Fever and Polio in Room No. 50"

We would love to have the feedback from more travelers about the new center in Mumbai. Please do remember that the easiest and most conveneient way to take the Yellow Fever vaccination in Mumbai is probably the TravelSafe Clinic Center in Chembur. You can get more information by calling Malini at +919867694813 or visiting our website at www.travelsafeclinic.com

    4. private clinics like the one at chembur are no more allowed to give such vaccinations. Only Govt hopsital ( J J Hopital at Mumbai ) Airport of Mumbai and Navy building at Ballard estate are currently authorised to give such vaccinations.

    5. Wherever said above in the main post is absolutely true and perfect.
      You need to carry original passport. If original not there then show photocopy + one valid photo id like driving license or pan card

    6. Absolutely true and very easy to get yellow fever.nice expierance. (JJ hospital)

  2. Can u tell me there working days ?

  3. Chembur center is now closed. They r not giving Yellow fever vaccination now.

    1. True,
      They are still doing routine travel vaccines, but no longer offering Yellow Fever Vaccination.

  4. The TravelSafe Clinic in Mumbai does NOT GIVE YELLOW-FEVER Vaccine anymore.

  5. The TravelSafe Clinic in Mumbai DOES NOT VACCINATE for Yellow-fever anymore.

    1. Your are quite correct, unfortunately that is true,
      The NOIDA Clinic and the Mohali Clinic are still providing the same, and we have launched a Vaccine@home Initiative as well. Check the tabs above.
      Warm regards

  6. Visit JJ hospital. I did it today :)

    I reached at the hospital at around 8:00 AM and went to Room 11(coutner 11) where Window no. 11 was closed. So I was advised by the bystanders to join the Queue that was already there for Window no. 10. At around 8:30 AM I got my OPV token( You have to present your Passport and pay Rs. 10).

    I then went and asked one of the Hospital staff where is the Yellow Fever Vaccination ward( viz Ward 50). They gave me the directions to the correct place which is adjacent to the counter 11( Walk straight and take a left, you will see people standing with their Passport)

    Join the queue and register yourself. Registration is done by Intern Doctors.Once the registration is done, you will be asked to wait outside the room/ward and the Intern Doctors would come out and call out the names such that a batch of 10 folks are formed.

    Wait for your name and dont leave the premises. Also note that, you need to eat something before being vaccinated.

    Once your name is called, you will be asked to enter a cabin where you will be seated in the sequence at which your name was called.

    There instructions are given on filling up the Yellow Fever card and you will be asked to fill up your details(pretty much straight forward).

    After your details are etched, the Doctors verify the inputs on the form and they sign the form.

    This is followed by the vaccination session. There is a chair in another partition of the room where you will be asked to expose your shoulders where the vaccination is done( upper part of your left hand near the shoulder)

    Once this is done, your card will be handed over to you and off you go.

    The whole procedure for me (from standing in queue for OPV registration till I stepped out of ward 50) was approx. 1 hour 45 minutes.

    Have your breakfast before the vaccination.
    Wear a T-shirt so that you don't have to unbutton in front of the Lady Interns :P


    1. Thanks for the detailed tips,
      Great to have your feedback,

    1.Entre from gate 6
    2.Go to opd section @ window no 11 ( which is in centre of opd hall)
    3.There is a sep queue for ladies gents and senior citizen ( one registration per person- so ech one has to stand for herself / himself)
    4. Pay Rs.10/- at the counter get registration no and proceed to room no 50 on the same level.
    5. Entre the room and give ur registration no to the intern doctors and wait till they call out your name.
    6. They need 10 candidates per batch ( so early you go, your wait time is minimal) else you wait till they form a group of 10 candidates.
    7. Timings are - 9:00 am to 12:00 pm
    8. Wear a short sleeved t-shirt or top.( so that you dont have to unbutton in front of intern)
    9. Once you taKe the vaccine it takes about 10 days for it to work on your system.
    10. a. Pregnant ladies cannot take this vaccine
    b. If you have taken any vaccine on or bfre yellow fever vaccine date you cannot take this vaccine for nxt 1 month.
    c. If you are allergic to egg protien or are taking heavy medicAtion like steriods avoid taking yello fever.
    11. Carry original or xerox copy of passport also wrks.
    12. 1st they give yellow fever shot later you fill in form for OPV and then once OPV drops are given you cannot eat or drink for nxt 30mins.

    They follow a systematic procedure which makes it hassel free for the candidates and wait is also minimal as compared to other centres.

JJ hospital it Grant Hospital, very professionally handle yellow fever vaccine, get yourself a voucher slip from the OPD counter paying Rs.10, go to ward 50, register yourself for the vaccine by entering details in a register based on the slip given to you.they start vaccination by 9 to 9.30 am in batches of 10, they give the group a good brief about the vaccines , what why etc. They then go ahead with the injection. They also mention countries where even polio drop document is supposed to be given and give that too.i am really impressed by the whole exercise . Good job done.

    1. Thanks, this is very helpful,
      Warm regards

  14. Visited JJ hsp today for yellow fever vaccination.its the same location mentioned above,room number 50 is opposite to counter 11.Rs 20 is charged for registeration.All doctors are co-operative and it is well organized.Do not forget to carry your original passport.Vaccination fees is Rs 300.so in total we have to pay Rs 320 for having this vaccination.

  15. Thanks for all the information, helped me a lot.
    I went at 10 am, got registered at counter 11 (queue for males) paid Rs.20/-
    Got directions for ward 50. As I reached there were 4 people waiting, I was the 5th. The interns there registered my name and asked me to wait, in about 5 minutes we all were asked to go in. Information regarding yellow fever vaccine was given, instructions on filling the yellow card were given and then money collected (300 per person). vaccine was given and in less than 15 minutes I was out. Took another 5 minutes for polio vaccination required by some countries, this information is given by the doctors too.

  16. The information given above by the bloggers is correct. I took yellow fever vacc on 29 Sept 2018 in JJ Hospital. You can reach there by 9am. Ask any hospital staff for guidance.
    Fee paid: rs300+rs20 (for registration)

  17. We are group of 8 members ( with two kids- 5 year old) travelling to Kenya on 31st Oct. We all had the yellow fever vaccine and the oral polio drops at JJ hosp today. Reached the hospital at around 8.30 am. Entered OPD through gate no 6 - window counter 10-11. Got the vaccination done around 10.30 am. One Tip- Dont get overwhelmed by the crowd and the dirt all around. The doctors are very professional and will handle the procedure very efficiently. Its just the pre-registration which is tedious and takes little but of time.
