Yellow Fever Card by ibrak200: 2:06pm On Apr 12, 2012
Please friend where can i get a yellow fever card in lagos,nigeria. And is it must i that i must go with it to south africa ?
Re: Yellow Fever Card by jidewin(m): 9:32pm On Apr 12, 2012
Go to dept of public health at the international airport.Once you enter the departure lounge,ask for where post office is,its opposite post office.
Go with your international passport and there they will give you the yellow fever injection and your yellow card for a small token,N1k.
I advise you obtain your yellow fever card at the airport rather than at the local govt. health centers as their vaccine batch numbers may not tally with the ones they inoculate you with at the airport.

Thanks for this piece of information.

However, the location for obtaining the vaccination and issuing the Yellow Fever card has changed. The location is Ministry of Health, Port Health Office, beside the Toll Gate. If you are coming from Mafoluku Oshodi axis, turn right into the toll gate. The building is immediately after the toll gate. You should see the sign post.

The procedure is also very simple and straightforward. You will need a photocopy of your Passport Biodata page and N1000. You have to go in person as proxy processing is not permitted.
1. Enter your name, Passport Number and Telephone Number in the Register provided.
2. Submit the photocopy of your Passport biodata page and N1000 to the receiving Nurses.
3. Wait on the queue for inoculation.
4. Get inoculated.
5. Collect your Yellow Card.

As expected, there are touts around the premises waiting for gullible people to fleece. Don't fall victim. The process is simple and easy. It takes less than 5 minutes.

Enjoy!

Find your way to IKEJA POST-OFFICE,beside there is a motor park where buses going to airport are situated....tell the driver you are going to PORT-HEALTH




MY MAIN QUESTION IS....
I was to submit YELLOW CARD with other of my docs to an embassy around February but I later changed my mind due to timing with my work and other logistics.
Now I'm ready to do the submission, knowing fully well that travel date is stated on he YELLOW CARD.

*Fellow....Please can I still use the previous YELLOW CARD or il need to do another.

Thank you all in anticipation.

NO....Port-health service is before the airport.

Coming from OSHODI........ITS BY THE RIGHT SIDE IMMEDIATELY AFTER THE AIR PORT TOLL-GATE
COMING FROM IKEJA..........ITS A BUILDING BY THE LEFT CONER BEFORE THE TOLL-GATE.

Did this today at the Port Health Office beside the Toll Gate, and it went EXACTLY as described below. Note: You're supposed to get this done at least 10 days before your date of travel.

So you mean I cant travel before 10day elapses.

I intend doing on tuesday and making a quick trip on Wednesday. Is that out-rightly impossible?
Re: Yellow Fever Card by tatalotambolo: 10:41pm On Sep 03
You can explain your situation to the personel
Incharge of payment and registration that you need to back date the date of issuance as the case may be she will request for an additional token, but she will do it for you, 500/1000# will do the magic

It's not impossible at all. You'll just have to 'negotiate' with them.
