Yellow fever certificate scam in Tanzania

Authorities are investigating the indiscriminate issuance of yellow fever vaccination certificates in return for bribes in Mnazi Mmoja and at the airport in Dar es Salaam. Issuance of fake yellow fever vaccination cards or of cards to individuals who have not been vaccinated results in no protection against a frequently fatal infection if visiting a yellow fever area (e.g., neighbouring Kenya) and there is a risk that a yellow fever infected individual might travel where the the mosquito vector is present and start new outbreaks.
