Certified Yellow Fever Vaccination Clinic

Yellow Fever Vaccine provides protection from a very severe viral illness transmitted by mosquitoes. It is a risk only in some countries such as Africa and South America. Some countries require proof of yellow fever immunization as a condition for entry and/or to get a visa.

Yellow Fever can be contracted by anyone, but the risk of infection is much greater in the elderly. Symptoms usually develop 3 – 6 days after being bitten by an infected mosquito.

Yellow Fever Has Three Stages:

  1. Early stage: Headache, muscle and joint aches, fever, flushing, loss of appetite, vomiting, and jaundice are common. After approximately 3 – 4 days, often symptoms go away briefly (remission
  2. Period of remission: After 3 – 4 days, fever and other symptoms go away. Most people will recover at this stage, but others may move onto the third, most dangerous stage (intoxication stage) within 24 hours.
  3. Period of intoxication: Multi-organ dysfunction occurs. This may include heart, liver, and kidney failure, bleeding disorders, hemorrhage, and brain dysfunction including delirium, seizures, coma, shock, and death.
