Yellow fever is a viral disease transmitted by mosquitos in parts
of Africa and South America. The spectrum of illness ranges from
a flu-like syndrome to severe hepatitis and hemorrhagic fever. In
addition to vaccination, travelers should take personal
protective measures against exposure to mosquitos when traveling
in areas where yellow fever occurs.
Initially, yellow fever vaccine consists of one dose which should
be given at least ten days prior to arrival in an infected area.
The period of protection is about ten years and can be extended
by revaccination. The vaccine can only be given at a designated
Yellow Fever Vaccination Center and, when required for entry into
a country, must be documented on the International
Certificate of Vaccination.
