Yellow fever vaccine in imited supply

Sindecuse Health Center at WMU is experiencing limited supply of yellow fever vaccine as are other local travel clinics. Supplies are limited across the United States due to production issues reported by the manufacturer, Sanofi Pasteur. As part of scheduled travel clinic visits, the health center provides yellow fever vaccine to travelers going to countries or areas with a known risk of yellow fever virus transmission. The health center recommends travel clinic visits be scheduled six to eight weeks in advance of expected departure. Sindecuse Health Center will provide yellow fever vaccine to travel clinic patients on a first-scheduled, first-served basis, and will notify those affected if supply becomes unavailable.
