Yellow fever is typically found in Africa, South America, Central America and the Caribbean. If you are travelling to one of these areas we recommend visiting our travel clinic to discuss the vaccine and for up to date advice on bite prevention.
To reduce your chances of catching yellow fever while travelling we recommend actively taking steps to prevent mosquito bites. Never assume that where you’re staying will be taking steps to keep mosquitoes at bay, always bring your own deterrents and follow this advice:
Vaccination against yellow fever is often recommended to prevent the disease from spreading amongst travellers. It’s also recommended if you are travelling to an area where yellow fever is found or the country you’re visiting requires you to have a certificate proving you have been vaccinated against yellow fever.
See a doctor straight away if you get symptoms of yellow fever while travelling in an area where the infection is found. Be sure to tell your GP that you think you have been bitten by a mosquito and accurately describe your symptoms.
