Yellow Fever Vaccine Shortage

Sanofi Pasteur, the manufacturer of the only yellow fever vaccine (YF-Vax) licensed in the United States, has announced that YF-Vax for civilian use is now totally unavailable from the manufacturer until mid-2019 because of delays in the production process. However, YF-VAX might be available at some clinics for several months, until remaining supplies at those sites are used up.

Travelers can find clinics with remaining doses of YF-VAX, by visiting the yellow fever vaccination clinic search page.
