We are expanding availability of Yellow Fever Vaccines to more Top Health Doctors GP Practices so you can plan a worry-free journey!

Are you an adventurous traveller? It’s crucial to ensure that you are well-prepared for potential health risks you may encounter in different regions of the world. One such risk is Yellow Fever, a viral disease transmitted by mosquitoes in tropical and subtropical areas of Africa and South America. As part of our ongoing commitment to keeping you safe and healthy on your adventures around the globe, we are pleased to announce the expanded availability of Yellow Fever vaccines to many of our GP practices. Providing easy access to travel vaccines is a vital component of our travel health service.

What is Yellow Fever Anyway?

Yellow Fever is caused by the yellow fever virus, which is primarily transmitted through the bite of those pesky infected mosquitoes. The virus mainly hangs out in tropical and subtropical areas of Africa and South America. If you get bitten by an infected mosquito, you may experience a wide range of symptoms, from mild fever and headache to more severe manifestations such as jaundice (that’s where the “yellow” comes in!), liver damage, and even death.

Where are the risk areas?

Yellow Fever is endemic in tropical regions of Africa and South America, particularly in parts of sub-Saharan Africa and the Amazon basin. So, if you’re planning a jungle adventure or a safari, it’s definitely something to keep in mind.

Importance of Vaccination:

Vaccination against Yellow Fever is the most effective way to prevent the disease and is often a requirement for entry into certain countries with endemic Yellow Fever transmission. Additionally, vaccination not only protects the individual traveller but also contributes to the prevention of outbreaks in vulnerable communities.

Who needs a Yellow Fever Vaccination?

According to the World Health Organization (WHO), Yellow Fever vaccination is recommended for all travellers aged 9 months and above visiting countries or areas at risk of Yellow Fever transmission. The good news is that vaccine provides lifelong protection in most cases and is considered safe and highly effective.

It’s also a great idea for travellers to take precautions to avoid mosquito bites, such as using insect repellent, wearing long-sleeved clothing, and sleeping under mosquito nets, especially during peak mosquito activity times.

So, when you are ready to head off on your journey, stay informed, be prepared, and get vaccinated! Then all you need to do is enjoy a memorable and worry-free journey!
