On January 16, 2014 the Centers for Disease Control announced a shortage of the yellow fever vaccine in the United States. This has resulted in our health department being limited to ordering only 10 doses of yellow fever vaccine once every 150 days.
Effective April 3, 2014 yellow fever vaccine will be available as follows:
1. Wayne County residents only.
2. Those traveling to Africa or French Guiana only on a first come first served basis.
If you are in need of the yellow fever vaccine, please go to the CDC website for a list of Authorized U.S. Yellow Fever Vaccine Centers. The list can be found at www.cdc.gov/yellowfever/links/ . If you have any questions please call the Wayne County Health Department and ask to speak with a Travel Nurse.
