 Yellow fever vaccine medication information

Yellow fever is a serious disease caused by a virus that is spread by the bite of an infected mosquito. Yellow fever can cause fever, cold symptoms, jaundice (yellowing of the eyes and skin), liver failure, lung failure, kidney failure, vomiting of blood, and death. The yellow fever vaccine is given to people who plan to live or travel to areas with a yellow fever outbreak.

The yellow fever vaccine is given to help prevent yellow fever in adults and children who are at least 9 months old. The vaccine protects your body from the virus by exposing you to the virus. You should get the yellow fever vaccine at least 10 days before you enter a high-risk area.

The yellow fever vaccine is also given to people who work in a research laboratory and who may be exposed to the yellow fever virus (through contaminated needles or by inhaling viral droplets in the air).
