Default Yellow Fever Pandemic Alert

It is possible there could be an explosion of cases and there is no cure.

Got mine twice already.
Once before I left for Africa long ago and once recently because I lost the first vaccination certificate. I am sure it is in one of the unopened boxes we shlep around, from house to house, from country to country and from continent to continent

My friend's son died from yellow fever age 29 when he visited his dad in Bolivia. And he was vaccinated !

Vaccination should protect for life.

Yellow Fever vaccinations are given every 10 yrs and are contraindicated after age 60 .

Had mine when I was in the service. Probably would need it again if yellow fever were to show up in Florida again. Back in the day it was a major killer here.
