Seychelles & Yellow fever

Hi everyone,

my mexican friend is having a hard time trying to find a place where he lives where he can get a yellow fever shot before a trip to Kenya followed by one to the Seychelles. He's supposed to have a proof of vaccination when entering the seychelles since he's coming from Kenya. Can people confirm that the yellow fever proof of vaccination is actually requested at entry to the seychelles when coming from Kenya?

Thanks much.

If you look in this forum there is a huge thread about yellow fever certs. The reality is that you can be stopped at any airport at any time when flying to or through Africa. Maybe yes, maybe no. You may never know in advance. So you should always, always have one with you. And there are plenty of places in Mexico where you can get one, including at MEX, the international airport clinic.

Thanks, I didn't know there was one in MEX, but that'll be too late he arrives in Nairobi 2 days later.
He's in Tijuana, and so far it's been impossible to find a clinic, and he cannot cross to the US.
Thanks for the information though, we'll try our best to find a shot before going!

They're out of stock. I guess the only option is the MEX airport then. Thanks.
