In short
The Ministry of Health has cautioned healthcare providers against duping unsuspecting Ugandans into receiving more than one dose of yellow fever vaccination. On July 11, 2016, the World Health Organisation WHO put into force the amendments to International Health Regulations on yellow fever. This means one no longer needs booster vaccinations after ten years as was the case before.
