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.
The Midland County Health Dept. has been chosen as one of six counties in the state of Michigan to provide Stamaril, an alternative to the Yellow Fever vaccine. Stamaril has been used in in Europe for over 20 years, but is new in the United States. This means that Stamaril is currently classified as a investigational drug. Therefore, this vaccine is not covered by your insurance. Call the international travel clinic for more information.
