Yellow Fever Vaccine near you in Pleasanton

We are a Yellow Fever (YF) vaccination provider registered with the CDC. The Aedes aegypti mosquito is the primary transmitter of the deadly viral hemorrhagic illness, yellow fever. It is widespread throughout much of South America and Africa. The yellow fever vaccine is affordable, effective, and strongly advised before visiting a nation where the disease is endemic. For the majority of people, a single dose offers lifelong protection.

  • For those traveling to or residing in areas at risk of yellow fever virus in Africa and South America, a single shot of the live, weakened form of the virus vaccine offers lifelong protection.
  • The vaccine is recommended for individuals aged nine months or older.
  • It is important to note that certain countries may require proof of yellow fever vaccination before entry. Please refer to relevant resources for information on specific vaccination requirements and recommendations for particular countries.
  • Important information on the CDC Travelers’ Health page highlights that not all resources for dealing with yellow fever vaccine reactions are available.
  • Typically, reactions to the vaccine are mild and may result in headaches, muscle pain, or low-grade fevers.
  • However, some individuals may experience severe and life-threatening reactions such as an allergic response causing breathing or swallowing difficulties (anaphylaxis), swelling of the brain, spinal cord, or surrounding tissues (encephalitis or meningitis), Guillain-Barré syndrome which can cause muscle weakness and paralysis, or dysfunction/failure of internal organs.
  • It is important to seek advice from a healthcare practitioner if you have a fever.

Possible side effects of this vaccine include pain, redness, low-grade fever, headache, muscle aches, fatigue, joint pain, nausea or vomiting, and serious allergic reactions (extremely rare).

How much does the yellow fever vaccine cost?

We offer self-pay and insurance pricing for the yellow fever vaccine. You can go to our book online webpage for self-pay pricing. If you want the Yellow fever vaccine through insurance, we will need you to pay for the yellow card separately, as insurance does not cover it. We can bill the vaccine and administration to the insurance.

Yellow Fever (YF) vaccine booster doses are no longer required.

It is also important to note that countries cannot demand proof of revaccination against Yellow Fever as a condition of entry, even if the traveler’s last vaccination was more than ten years ago. Please refer to CDC guidelines for more details.
