Certificate is required for entry into, or travel between, some African countries. Several of these vaccines require more than one dose, or take time to become effective. It is always best to seek advice from your doctor on immunization well in advance, if possible around 6 weeks before departure.
The government of Nigeria requires the original yellow fever vaccination certificate upon arrival in Nigeria.
For Malaria, talk to your doctor about how to prevent malaria while traveling. You may need to take prescription medicine before, during, and after your trip to prevent malaria, especially if you are visiting low-altitude areas.
Your yellow fever vaccination certificate is not required as part of the visa application process, you must have the original certificate on arrival in Nigeria.
