Yellow Fever (with certificate)

Yellow fever is a serious infection spread by mosquitoes. It's found in certain areas of Africa and South and Central America. You should have a yellow fever vaccination if you're travelling to an area where there's a risk of getting it. You can get yellow fever if you're bitten by an infected mosquito. The mosquitoes that carry the yellow fever virus bite during the day.


Yellow fever is very common in certain parts of the world, including:

  • parts of sub-Saharan Africa (the area below the Sahara desert)

  • parts of South America, including Trinidad and Tobago

  • parts of Central America


Yellow fever is not found in the UK, Europe, Asia, Australia, New Zealand or the Pacific Islands.

What Vaccines are available?

A highly effective live YF vaccine is available and in general vaccination is recommended for all persons visiting countries where there is a risk of YF virus transmission. Very rarely yellow fever vaccination is associated with serious adverse reactions. Prior to vaccination a careful risk assessment is required that considers:

  • risk of disease to the individual

  • certificate requirements for vaccination according to International Health Regulations

  • risk of complications following vaccination
