Unfortunately, due to bureaucratic red tape and governmental apathy and indifference, most of these centers have restricted working hours, need for prior appointment and rude staff whose attitude leaves a lot to be desired.
Hence, many enterprising private doctors have been providing this vaccination to people needing the yellow fever vaccine. This vaccine is called STAMARIL (manufactured by Sanofi Aventis at France) and imported under license of Drug Controller Authority of India.
When provided along with the WHO International Certificate of Vaccination, the vaccination is internationally accepted with a validity of 10 years.
