Help. I am going to Kilimanjaro, Tanzania and they need a Yellow Fever vaccination certificate. I understand when I come back, Qatar also requires to see the cert because I had travelled there.
Which hospital, clinic or health centre can give the vaccination ?

Vaccine for Yellowfever can be taken at Mesaimeer Health Centre. The centre has state of the art facilities (compared to what is expected from a health centre) and a dedicated vaccination unit inside. It is not mandatory to have Hamad health cards to take this vaccine. Fri and Sat are holidays. You may approach the reception there and they will guide you on what is to be done. If you mention you travel destination as Africa, they may advise you to take Hepatitis A and Typhoid vaccination also. And its generally better to take them as well. You will need to pay 10 QAR at the cashier desk. Only cards accepted. I could get all these three on the same day within one hour total turnaround time. Three injections were taken and then you get a WHO approved International certification of Vaccination with a stamp fixed. (as on Jan 2015)
i heard there is a long Queue in going to NHA for medical exam or the vaccination area for yellow fever is separate from getting a medical exam for the permanent visa here in Qatar?
Thanks everyone ! Went to the vaccination unit along Abu Hamour Road. Road construction on and you know how long it will take to complete. Slip road to front of vaccination unit is not accessible.
So please turn into petrol station, go round the shopping centre and park next to villas.
No crowd when I went at 12 noon. It took less than 5 mins, cost QR10 and you get a WHO internationally recognised card/certificate. Vaccination last for 10 years. There is male and female section.
Wish me luck for the challenging climb up Mt Kilimanjaro. Promise to have a good time in Africa.
cool.. enjoy your trip. I love that part of the world.. its amazing..
Dont miss to visit Tanzania.. Arusha.. sharangetti and ofcourse the beaches of Zanzibar..
