Yellow fever is a severe mosquito borne viral disease that can be life threatening. The more serious cases involve jaundice, where the skin turns yellow.
The illness is endemic (always present) in tropical areas of Africa and Central and South America. It occurs in jungle and urban settings and is most common during the rainy season.
The yellow fever vaccine is a relatively safe and highly effective single-dose vaccine which provides life long immunity.The vaccination should be completed a minimum of ten days before entering the at risk destination. Yellow Fever vaccination is recommended for travel within all endemic areas and a yellow fever vaccination certificate may also be needed to enter certain countries, including Australia, after leaving such countries.

It is spread from animals to humans, usually by the bite of an infected dog.
High-risk areas include Africa, South East, East and Central Asia and the Indian subcontinent. While dogs account for most human deaths, all mammals, including cats, foxes, monkeys, and bats are susceptible to the virus.
Two doses administered one week apart will provide adequate immunity while a third dose at least three weeks after the first will provide life long protection.
