Must I get a shot for yellow fever to visit Ghana?

  • 1
    Is there any reason not to get immunized given that Ghana is an endemic yellow fever country, the immunization is secure and risk-free and yellow fever is an extremely serious infection? Commented Jan 29, 2017 at 14:07

Strictly, no because passengers arriving without a yellow fever vaccination certificate are subject to vaccination upon arrival, for which there is a fee.

Also, passengers leaving Ghana are required to present a yellow fever vaccination certificate upon departure.

Ghana Embassy for further details.
