In Need of Yellow Fever vaccination? We Can Help
Read on as we explain what Yellow Fever is, and how you can protect yourself when travelling.
What is Yellow Fever?
It’s a disease caused by a virus, and is transmitted when you’re bitten by an infected mosquito – usually during the day. It can’t be spread through close contact with an infected person.
Symptoms include: fever, nauseousness, backache, headaches and lack of appetite.
For some people, it can lead to serious health issues, such as organ failure, so it’s worth getting vaccinated.
Why Do I Need a Vaccination Certificate to Enter Certain Countries?
Yellow Fever is endemic in parts of Southern and Central America, sub-Saharan Africa, and Trinidad, in the Caribbean. It’s highly recommended, and sometimes required, that you have had a Yellow Fever vaccination to gain entry into these countries.
Once you’ve been vaccinated, you can use your vaccination certificate to travel between countries where Yellow Fever is endemic – and other countries where it isn’t.
Check out this list of countries that require you to prove vaccination against Yellow Fever.
Who needs a Yellow Fever Vaccine?
Anyone travelling to countries where the disease is endemic will need a vaccine – and we’ll give advice if you’re travelling with babies or if you’re over 60 years old. When you book an appointment, our nurses will carry out a thorough risk assessment to make sure that you’re fully protected and safe to travel.
A Yellow Fever vaccination will last for life. However, if you need a replacement certificate, our nurses can provide you with one.
