This was 5+ years ago, but I went to the government clinic on Hospital St. in Mombasa.

GPS coords are -4.058674, 39.671035

One dose can be used for five patients but it has to be used all at once, so to defray costs they took my number and called me a couple of hours later when they had four other people, then we all got the shot. I think it came to 1200 kes at the time, including the yellow book.

If they don't offer it there anymore, they'll direct you to the nearest location.

I've no personal experience but I have read on this forum in the past that people got YF vaccinations at the Mombasa Hospital and at the Aga Khan hospital which are not far apart from each other in Mombasa Town.

The WHO also says they are available at the KPA Medical Centre at Mombasa Port

Bear in mind that there is a 10 day maturity period for the vaccine, which could affect your travel plans, as you are not technically covered until the 10th day.

I had mine done in Nairobi - Ksh 1700 if I recall correctly - cash only.

I found out the hard way!
