Yellow fever - national vaccine shortage

21/10/2013

Following on from our news article dated 16th Sepetember 2013 regarding a national shortage of Yellow Fever vaccine, the surgery has now used up the last of its remaining supplies.

As previously advised, patients may be able to find alternative supplies at private travel clinics, but these are likely to be similarly affected.

The NHS Choices website suggests that you should consider vaccination if you are visiting the following countries.  This guidance is subject to change, and patients should consult the website for further guidance.
