Yellow Fever Vaccination

Yellow Fever is a potentially fatal disease spread by mosquitoes. It can be prevented with a single vaccine, Stamaril; which offers life-long protection. The Yellow fever vaccine is given only at designated vaccination centers.

Travellers who are going to an area where there is a known risk of the disease, should consider getting vaccinated. You should seek to have the Yellow Fever vaccine at least 10 days before you travel for it to be effective and to be officially accepted by the country to which you are travelling. Failure to provide a valid certificate where required could see you being denied entry to that country, or result in quarantine.

We are a Certified Yellow Fever Centre with availability throughout the week and are usually able to accommodate same day appointment requests.

What is Yellow Fever?

Yellow Fever is an acute viral haemorrhagic disease transmitted by infected mosquitoes and has the potential to spread rapidly and cause serious public health impact.

The death rate is high in those who develop severe disease. There is no specific treatment, although the disease is preventable using a single dose of yellow fever vaccine, which provides immunity for life.

How do we vaccinate against Yellow Fever?

Vaccination against Yellow Fever is provided with a single jab, which is a live vaccine and can safely be given to infants over 9 months old and adults.

The risks of the vaccine increases for those aged 60 years and over, so it is important to book a travel consultation to carry out a risk assessment and discuss your options.

Who is the Yellow Fever vaccine for?

The risk of acquiring Yellow Fever depends upon the destination and risk of exposure to mosquito bites.

Our travel nurses will discuss your travel plans and look at your general health to determine if the vaccine is advised.

Which countries require Yellow Fever for entry?

There are several countries in parts of Africa which require a yellow fever vaccination.

However, there are many countries in Central and South America, as well as Africa where it is highly recommended, although not a requirement. You can speak with the travel nurse during your appointment to find out what the requirements are depending on your travel plans.

What is the risk of Yellow Fever?

The risk of contracting YF is determined by the following factors:

  • Travel destination
  • Intensity of yellow fever transmission in the area(s) to be visited.
  • Season of travel (most cases in travellers have occurred in the late rainy season to early dry season)
  • Duration of travel
  • Activities allowing exposure to mosquitoes
  • Immunisation status

In order to prevent the international spread of yellow fever, under International Health Regulations, countries may require proof of vaccination, recorded in an International Certificate of Vaccination or Prophylaxis (ICVP).

What are the symptoms of Yellow Fever?

It can take up to 6 days from being bitten by an infected mosquito to becoming symptomatic.

Initial symptoms of yellow fever include fever, chills, headache, nausea, muscle aches and weakness. This can progress to high fever and jaundice (yellowing of the skin and eyes), internal bleeding and organ failure.

There is no cure for Yellow Fever, and the virus can be fatal in up to 50% of people who have severe symptoms.

In addition to the vaccination, protection against mosquito bites is important – wear long loose clothing, insect repellent with a minimum of 50% DEET, sleep under mosquito nets, use plugin vaporisers and treat clothes with permethrin.

As of 11 July 2016, The World Health Organization states that the period of validity of the yellow fever certificate (ICVP) has changed from 10 years to the duration of the life of the person vaccinated.

You need to have the vaccine at least 10 days before travelling to give it enough time to work and for your certificate to be valid.

As it is a live vaccine, the Yellow Fever vaccine is not recommended for everyone and some factors do increase the risk, such as in those aged 60 years. It is recommended all individuals discuss their risk during a travel consultation prior to vaccination. One of our travel nurses will determine whether it is advisable for you to get the yellow fever vaccine or not.

The yellow fever vaccine is only available from registered yellow fever vaccination centres. The jab is not usually given for free on the NHS. You will need to visit a travel clinic, such as Fleet Street Clinic for vaccination. We also provide you with a valid certificate as proof of vaccination which will be required for some internal travel destinations and VISAs.

We will discuss your travel plans in detail, so a copy of your travel itinerary including proposed dates of travel, destination(s) you’re travelling to and length of your stay are all helpful details for our nurses. We’ll also discuss your health so information about your vaccination history to date is useful, as well as any medication you are currently taking.

We will most likely vaccinate you upper arm, we would therefore advise you to wear loose comfortable clothing for ease of access to your upper arm for vaccination.
