The Yellow Fever Vaccine is currently in short supply. According to the manufacturer Sanofi Pasteur, it is not a product-related issue. Sanofi Pasteur is experiencing a delay in lot releases for the unit-dose vials. Due to the high demand for this presentation, public and community health clinics and other community locations that offer vaccines may have a depleted supply at this time.
Sanofi Pasteur is working diligently to make additional product available as quickly as possible.
The shortage of this vaccine has impacted travel to a few African tropical climates such as Tanzania, Côte d’Ivoire (Ivory Coast), and The Gambia
