International Travel

Yellow Fever Alert:

At this time we are experiencing a Yellow Fever vaccine shortage across the United States. This means that  yellow fever vaccine supply is limited.  For any planned trip to countries where there is a known risk of yellow fever virus transmission, further guidance should be obtained from your Local Health Department to determine yellow fever vaccine availability.  Please plan accordingly and allow a minimum of 8 weeks prior to your departure to ensure you can receive all of your travel vaccines in a timely manner.
