About Yellow Fever

Yellow fever is a vaccine preventable viral infection spread predominantly by certain species of day biting mosquitoes. Most people who get Yellow fever either have no symptoms or a mild illness and then fully recover. A small proportion of patients develop a severe illness with fever, jaundice (yellowing of the skin and eyes), bleeding and organ failure. The death rate is high in those who develop severe disease.

Yellow fever is a risk in some parts of Africa, South and Central America and in Trinidad (Caribbean). Areas with a risk of transmission are countries (or areas within countries) where mosquito species known to transmit the disease are present and where the infection is reported in monkeys and/or humans.

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

  • Travel destination.
  • Intensity of transmission in the area 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).

About the Yellow Fever Vaccine

REMEDI HEALTH is a designated Yellow Fever vaccination centre.

A highly effective live Yellow fever vaccine is available and vaccination is recommended for all persons visiting countries where there is a risk of virus transmission. The vaccination schedule is a single dose.

Very rarely yellow fever vaccination is associated with serious adverse reactions. Prior to vaccination a careful risk assessment is completed that takes into account:

  • risk of disease to the individual
  • certificate requirements for vaccination according to International Health Regulations
  • risk of complications following vaccination

A four week minimum interval period should be observed between the administration of yellow fever and measles, mumps and rubella (MMR) vaccines. There is some data to suggest co-administration of these two vaccines can lead to sub-optimal antibody responses to yellow fever, mumps and rubella antigens. Where protection is required rapidly then the vaccines should be given at any interval. An additional dose of MMR should be considered and re-vaccination with the yellow fever vaccine can also be considered on a case-by-case basis for those at ongoing risk.
