What is the Yellow Fever Vaccine and how does it work?

The yellow fever vaccine is a live attenuated vaccine, which means that it contains a weakened form of the virus. The vaccine stimulates your immune system to produce antibodies that protect against the virus. The vaccine is administered as a single dose and provides immunity for up to 10 years. It is recommended for individuals who are travelling to areas where yellow fever is endemic or for individuals who are at high risk of exposure to the virus.

Who should or shouldn’t have the yellow fever vaccine?

If you are planning to travel to a tropical or sub-tropical country, you may need to be vaccinated against yellow fever. Countries in sub-Saharan Africa, Central and South America and also the Caribbean are most likely to be in the yellow fever zone. You can find out more about which countries have yellow fever vaccination requirements at the NHS Fit for Travel website. In order to travel to some countries, a yellow fever vaccination may be mandatory. If you are unsure if you require a yellow fever vaccination, please contact our team at Tideswell Pharmacy for advice. It is important to take steps to prevent mosquito bites even if you have been vaccinated against yellow fever. This is because mosquitos can carry other diseases.

Most people can safely receive the yellow fever vaccination. However, there are some exceptions:

– Pregnant or breastfeeding women
– Babies under 9 months
– People over 60 years of age
– People with weakened immune systems such as those currently undergoing chemotherapy
– Anyone who is allergic to the vaccine ingredients including people with an egg allergy
– People with thymus gland conditions

It may be possible to get a certificate of exemption for some of the above conditions. However, pregnant or breastfeeding women or people with babies under 9 months are advised to delay their trips until they are able to receive a vaccination.

What can I expect at my appointment?

The service will be provided in a private consultation room. Our specially trained staff will talk you through the procedure including the possible side effects. All vaccinations carry risks but generally, these side effects are no worse than having a headache or fever for a couple of days.

The yellow fever vaccination is one injection into the upper arm. The vaccination is a single-dose vaccine meaning it does not require a course of injections or follow-up appointments to be effective. The vaccinated area may remain tender for a couple of days after receiving the dose.

Yellow fever vaccinations give lifelong protection. However, some people may occasionally require booster doses of the vaccine. Once you have received it, you will be issued with a vaccination certificate.

Will I get a yellow fever vaccination certificate?

Vaccination certificates are only available at a yellow fever vaccination centre, such as Tideswell Pharmacy. Our pharmacist will issue you a vaccination certificate after you receive your yellow fever vaccine. The certificate will be valid from 10 days after your vaccination. This ensures that the vaccine has had time to become effective before you jet off.
