Ritwika Mitra NEW DELHI, July 04, 2015, DHNS 8:04 IST

Now, those travelling to Africa and South America can now submit their applications for yellow fever vaccination online on the NDMC website. The online initiative will be launched on July 8.

Currently, travellers have to visit the New Delhi Municipal Council Headquarters to submit copies of applications for yellow fever vaccination. Following this, the council allots them an available slot.

“Once travellers plan their trip, they can submit their application online. There will be no need to come to the office physically. The earliest vaccination slot will be shown online while the person is submitting the application. This new process will allow residents from any part of the country to apply for yellow fever vaccination through the NDMC website. There will be 50 vaccination slots available weekly,” said a senior NDMC official.

Travellers can get vaccinated at the International Inoculation Centre on Mandir Marg in the council jurisdiction. The user will be provided with the application number and designated slot once the enrolment is complete.

Applicants can get vaccinated from 2 pm to 4 pm every Wednesday and Friday. Around 5,000 people come to the NDMC centre for vaccination annually. Travellers can also submit their applications to the Municipal Corporation of Delhi. However, the MCD has no plan yet to go online for applications of vaccination.

“There is no procedure in place to invite applications online. Applicants can get vaccinated at the centre located in Civil Lines,” said a senior official of the South Delhi Municipal Corporation.

Though yellow fever is not prevalent in India, it can lead to an epidemic in case the virus is transmitted through humans from the affected countries to India. Yellow fever is a hemorrhagic disease which affects both monkeys and humans.

This is caused by a virus and transmitted to humans through bites of infected mosquitoes. So it is mandatory for Indians travelling to tropical and sub-tropical places in Africa and South America to be vaccinated.
