Up next on the media scare tactic agenda. My yellow fever vaccination has a couple years left before it expires, I had a mild reaction, the injection hurt and I had a mild flu like reaction. http://www.cdc.gov/vaccines/hcp/vis/vis-statements/yf.html Yellow Fever in Angola What is the current situation? The Ministry of Health in Angola has reported an ongoing outbreak of yellow fever. At least 1,708 suspected and confirmed cases have been reported nationally, including 238 deaths. The majority of yellow fever cases and deaths have been in Luanda Province. However, cases have been reported throughout the country. The Ministry is working with the World Health Organization to control the outbreak and has been conducting an emergency vaccination campaign in Luanda Province since early February. The government of Angola requires all travelers older than 9 months of age to show proof of yellow fever vaccination upon arrival. In addition, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommends that all travelers to Angola aged 9 months or older be vaccinated against yellow fever. People who have never been vaccinated against yellow fever should not travel to Angola. Since there is currently a shortage of yellow fever vaccine, travelers may need to contact a yellow fever vaccine provider well in advance of travel. CDC no longer recommends booster doses of yellow fever vaccine for most travelers. However, Angola is currently a higher-risk setting because of the outbreak, so travelers to Angola may consider getting a booster if their last yellow fever vaccine was more than 10 years ago.
