Yellow fever (YF) is spread by the bite of an infected mosquito. is a vaccine preventable viral infection transmitted predominantly by certain species of day biting mosquitoes.

It is prevalent in tropical & sub-tropical regions of Africa and Central & South America. Outbreaks have caused up to a 50% mortality rate. The World Health Organisation (WHO) recommends vaccination if travelling to risk areas. Some countries require a certificate of proof of vaccination in order to enter. An International Certificate of Vaccination or Prophylaxis (ICVP) must be obtained from a registered yellow fever centre.

YF virus can cause an illness that results in:

  • jaundice (yellowing of the skin and eyes)

  • bleeding, with severe damage to the major organs.

The death rate is high in those who develop severe disease.

Those visiting YF risk areas should practise meticulous mosquito bite avoidance.
