Sept 18, 2017 Yellow fever is a serious mosquito transmitted disease for which we have had an effective, readily available vaccine. Travelers to central South America and central Africa may be at risk for yellow fever (see https://wwwnc.cdc.gov/travel/yellowbook/2018/infectious-diseases-related-to-travel/yellow-fever) for a list of areas with yellow fever endemic areas and maps. For a more in-depth explanation, see this newspaper op-ed.  

Because of manufacturing problems, production of the current US vaccine (YF-VAX) has stopped and will not be available again until possibly July 2018. A similar YF vaccine (STAMARIL) will be imported from France, and will be the only YF vaccine available in the US when the current supply of YF-VAX is gone. STAMARIL will be available only from a limited number of specialized clinics. In Oregon, there will be only five STAMARIL clinics in the Portland area and one in Eugene. 

For some travelers who may need YF vaccine, it might be best to plan far in advance, possibly have an evaluation by us, another STAMARIL Center or a YF-VAX travel clinic, and call a STAMARIL clinic to schedule an appointment if YF vaccine is indicated.
