One dose of the Yellow Fever Vaccine will be valid for travel regardless of when the vaccine was given.

In the event that a person has never been immunized for Yellow Fever, it is advised to get the vaccine at least 10 days prior to travelling.

We are advised to visit any of the following Medical Health Facilities within TWO WEEKS prior to departure from Trinidad and Tobago with the following:
