Yellow Fever Virus

Yellow fever is a serious viral disease that spreads through mosquito bites. Although some people recover after experiencing initial symptoms, there is a risk of a second phase of illness that can lead to jaundice, internal bleeding, and even death. The mortality rate for Yellow fever is up to 50%.

Unfortunately, there is no cure for this disease. To protect yourself from the risk of Yellow fever, it is crucial to receive a vaccination before travelling to at-risk areas. This is particularly important for travellers who are 9 months or older. If you plan to travel abroad, it is essential to check the vaccination requirements of the countries you plan to visit and speak to your doctor.
