NEW DELHI: Delhiites travelling to tropical and sub-tropical places in Africa and South America can now apply online for yellow fever vaccination on the website of New Delhi Municipal Council (NDMC).

The online facility was launched last week. Earlier, the travellers had to visit NDMC headquarters to submit applications for yellow fever vaccination, following which the council used to allot them an available slot.

Yellow fever is a haemorrhagic disease caused by a virus of the genus Flavivirus transmitted to humans by the bite of infected mosquitoes.

Though the epidemic is not prevalent in India, climatic conditions for propagation of the virus and vector responsible for transmission are present in the country. So it is mandatory for Indians travelling to Africa and South America to be vaccinated.

Anyone, except for infants upto the age of 9 months, arriving by air or sea without yellow fever vaccination certificate is detained in isolation for upto 6 days if the person has arrived through an airport situated in an area with risk of yellow fever transmission.

"Once the travellers plan their trip, they can apply online and select the earliest vacant slot available. There will be 50 vaccination slots available weekly," a senior NDMC official said.

Travellers can get vaccinated at the International Inoculation Centre on Mandir Marg in the council's jurisdiction from 2pm to 4pm every Wednesday and Friday.

Around 5,000 people come to the NDMC centre for vaccination annually. The fee for vaccination is Rs 300 per dose.

Travellers can also submit their applications to the Municipal Corporation of Delhi, however, there is no online application process available yet.
Comment: A traveler who visited our clinic has confirmed that the process works, even though some time is needed in the clinic itself.
Also it must be remembered that the government centers across India generally use an unbranded multidose Yellow Fever vaccination and inject 5-10 people with a single dose. TravelSafe Clinic on the other hand uses only SINGLE DOSE WHO approved STAMARIL vaccine from France, and provides the original sticker of the vaccination on the certificate itself. We have a center in NOIDA that provides Yellow Fever Vaccination in National Capital Region. You can call us at +918010777722 or email noida@travelsafeclinic.com for more information
