    Default yellow fever vacine

    Looks like you need a shot now before you come back from Panama, in fact, 10 days before.

    Good news is if you still have the card from a previous shot it is good for life now, not 10 years.

    From the info we have, shot and card is only available in mga.
    Keep posted, the living pin cushion will report...

    Is the shot free in Managua? Where, exactly does one get it??
    Those things are getting pricey in the US.

    I had mine during the Cuban missile crisis,, in case we had to invade.
    Out of date,, but the reaction should be mild the second time around.

    Yellow fever is a nasty way to go.

    M needs to track it down thru minsa. More worried about days available than cost. Trips to mga are a pain'
    Current practice is that the shots are good for life, but you have to have the official yellow card. Mine is long gone.

    ps-- I suspect this is mostly a thing because of the illegals trying to come up from Brazil but according to the Consulate it is the law.

    I read somewhere in the past week or so that the shots are only available on certain days and times In MGA. Will see if I can dig it up.

    have to have the official yellow card

    Where do you get one here?
    I used to have one too,,, but I'd never find it now. I remember it as being pretty full... Mine dates back to the early 60's,, they handed out innoculations like gum drops back in those days.
    Thank God there was no Anthrax then

    Thank you . We will look into this next week. We were planning a Panama trip this month and a South America one later in the year, so we might as well get the shots.
