Yellow Fever Vaccinations

We are pleased to announce that we are now an approved yellow fever vaccination centre. Yellow fever is a viral disease transmitted to humans by infected mosquitoes in parts of South America and Africa. Symptoms of infection include a sudden onset of fever, chills, muscle pain, backache, headache, nausea and vomiting three to six days after the virus enters the body. After three to four days most patients improve and their symptoms disappear. However, about 15% of patients will go on to have bleeding (from the mouth, nose and eyes and/or stomach), jaundice (yellowing of the skin and eyes), abdominal pain with vomiting and problems with kidney function. Half of these patients recover but the remaining half die within 10-14 days of developing these symptoms.

If you are travelling to South America and Africa you will need to arrange your vaccination at least 10 days before you travel.
