Nigeria Begins Implementation Of E-yellow Card From Today by technative(f): 9:30am On Jul 02, 2019
Posted By: ITEdgeNews


Beginning today, July 1, the Nigerian government will begin the implementation of the new e-Yellow Card to replace the old version of Yellow Card, the proof of vaccination against yellow fever, a requirement for international travellers from risk countries like Nigeria and as evidence that the carrier has been vaccinated against the disease.

According the Permanent Secretary of the Federal Ministry of Health, Mr. Abdulaziz Mashi, in an official statement released at the weekend in Abuja, the new Yellow Card contain enhanced security features verifiable anywhere in the world by scanning the bar code or checking the card number on the yellow card portal.

The introduction of the new e-Yellow Card would end the menace of fake cards that abound everywhere.

Mashi said from today, the new e-Yellow Card is the only valid documented proof of vaccination against yellow fever, a viral haemorrhagic fever caused by a virus transmitted by the Aedes Aegypti mosquito.

Yellow fever could be fatal but it is a vaccine-preventable disease. By the recommendations of the World Health Organisation (WHO), all international travelers into yellow fever prone areas including Nigeria must be vaccinated against disease.
