Yellow fever certificate is required according to this site. Quite pricey I think. Not sure where you can get it done in Dubai.

Also Malaria and Dengue risks so take some pills!

I think the yellow fever can only be done at the hospital and I think there might be a charge for it, something is ringing a bell. Worth checking though

BC is right - you can only get it done at certain hospitals and travel health centres in the UK (there is one in Edinburgh....!) You will be charged. I think about 50GBP....but it lasts 10 years!
