The nurse was friendly but not at all gentle in swabbing my nose for the pcr test. I let her know how much she was hurting me and I know it could have been done to the same effect a lot more gently. She also told me it would take 2-3 days to get pcr results. I was led to believe otherwise from your web site and the doctor who was very friendly came in after and said we should have it probably 24 hours.

Washington Yellow Fever Vaccine

Getting the yellow fever vaccine can reduce your risk of getting this viral infection. Knowing more about the yellow fever shot and how it works can empower you to make informed healthcare decisions for yourself and your family.

About yellow fever

Yellow fever is a viral infection you can contract if you are bitten by a mosquito infected with this virus. Anyone can get yellow fever, though older adults may be at higher risk for severe infection, reports the National Library of Medicine (NLM). This disease tends to be common in South America and sub-Saharan Africa, adds the NLM.

Yellow fever symptoms

Yellow fever has three stages: the infection stage, the remission stage, and the intoxication stage, reports the NLM. Symptoms of yellow fever are different depending on the stage you’re in.

Acute infection phase

Stage 1 of yellow fever is the acute infection phase or the acute phase. According to the NLM, symptoms in the acute phase usually go away within three to four days and include:

  • Headache
  • Muscle and joint pain
  • Fever
  • Flushing
  • Loss of appetite
  • Nausea and vomiting
  • Jaundice

Stage 2 of yellow fever is the remission phase. Some people recover fully from yellow fever during this phase, while others may develop more severe symptoms and progress to the toxic phase, adds the NLM.

Toxic phase

Stage 3 of yellow fever is the toxic stage or the intoxication stage. The NLM reports that symptoms in the toxic phase usually affect the organs, especially the heart, liver, and kidney. These symptoms include:

  • Decreased urination
  • Irregular heart rate
  • Bleeding disorders
  • Seizures
  • Delirium
  • Coma

When to see a doctor

The NLM suggests seeing a doctor at least 10 to 14 days before traveling to a region in which yellow fever is common. It adds that yellow fever countries where this virus is common include certain parts of Africa and South America. Your doctor can use this information to determine whether you should be vaccinated as a yellow fever prevention method.

You should also see your doctor when you arrive home after traveling to these countries. The NLM recommends contacting your doctor immediately if you have traveled to a region where yellow fever is common and you or a family member has developed fever, headache, muscle aches, vomiting, or jaundice.

Causes of yellow fever

Yellow fever is caused by a virus that is carried by mosquitoes. You can get yellow fever if you are bit by one of these mosquitoes and aren’t vaccinated against this virus. According to the NLM, the yellow fever virus is found mainly in certain parts of Africa and South America.

Yellow fever risk factors

Being unvaccinated against yellow fever is a major risk factor for this virus. Avoiding trips to yellow fever countries in Africa and South America can also reduce your risk of getting yellow fever, reports the NLM.

Other steps you can take to lower your risk further, according to the CDC, include using mosquito repellent products, wearing long-sleeved shirts and pants, and taking steps to control mosquitoes indoors and outdoors.

Complications from yellow fever

Yellow fever can cause a wide range of serious health problems, reports the NLM. Internal bleeding and even death can occur if you get yellow fever.

Other potential complications from yellow fever include:

  • Kidney failure
  • Liver failure
  • Salivary gland infection
  • Secondary bacterial infections
  • Shock
  • Coma

Yellow fever prevention

The yellow fever vaccine may prevent yellow fever, states the NLM. Other effective prevention methods include staying in areas that are screened in or air-conditioned, wearing protective clothing, and using effective insect repellent products.

Yellow fever vaccine

The yellow fever vaccine can provide lifelong protection against this virus, states the CDC. The NLM adds that this vaccine is approved for use in people between the ages of nine months and 59 years who are traveling to or who live in an area where yellow fever is known to exist. Many countries require you to show proof of vaccination against yellow fever before you can enter.

Mosquito protection

According to the CDC, the best way to protect yourself against mosquitoes is to use an insect repellent that is registered with the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). Repellents registered with the EPA contain active ingredients such as DEET and oil of lemon eucalyptus that can ward off mosquitoes to prevent mosquito bites and yellow fever.

The CDC also recommends wearing long-sleeved shirts and pants to prevent mosquito bites and spending time indoors where window screens and air conditioners are available and fully functional.

Yellow Fever Vaccine FAQs

  • Where can I get a yellow fever vaccine in Washington?

    In general, yellow fever vaccines will be available at Washington-area urgent care centers, retail clinics, primary care doctor offices, local pharmacies and travel vaccination centers. While walk-in appointments are typically available, booking a visit online will reduce your wait time and ensure you protect yourself from yellow fever in time for your trip.

  • How can I book a yellow fever vaccine in Washington?

    Regardless of the kind of vaccine you are seeking, Solv can help you book an appointment. Simply search for Washington-area doctors, find a provider, and book the most convenient time for you. Be sure to include your travel plans and previous immunizations to give your doctor a better idea of the vaccines you may need.

  • Can I make a same-day appointment for a yellow fever vaccine in Washington?

    Same-day and next-day appointments for yellow fever vaccine consultations can easily be booked directly through Solv. Simply search for Washington-area doctors, find a provider, and book an appointment as soon as today. Be sure to include your travel plans and previous immunizations to give your doctor a better idea of the vaccines you may need.

  • How do I find the top-rated travel vaccination specialists in Washington?

    Solv gathers reviews, ratings, and other data on Washington-area travel vaccination specialists to ensure the clinics provided meet our standards. Search for a provider, see what previous patients think, and book an appointment with a top-rated doctor today!

  • Who should get a yellow fever vaccine?

    Anyone over the age of nine months with plans to travel to or live in an area that's at high risk for the yellow fever virus, such as South America and Africa, should receive a yellow fever vaccine. If you are planning on traveling from Washington to Brazil, Ghana, or a number of other countries, a yellow fever vaccine will be required for entry. You must be vaccinated at least ten days before your trip.

  • Are video visits available with travel vaccination specialists in Washington?

    While a yellow fever vaccine cannot be administered over video, your doctor can evaluate and advise you or your child from your home in Washington. They can discuss your travel plans, recommend and order necessary vaccinations, and book immunization appointments via telemedicine.

  • How much does a yellow fever vaccine cost in Washington?

    Without insurance, a consultation, service fee and yellow-fever vaccine will typically range from $150 to $350. With preventative insurance, you will end up paying the copay for a consultation and vaccine administration, ranging from $10 to $40. Costs will vary by clinic - book a consultation at a Washington-area clinic to see how much a yellow-fever vaccine would cost for you.

  • Is a yellow fever vaccine covered by my insurance?

    As yellow fever vaccines are considered elective, it’s not uncommon that insurance will not cover the cost of the vaccine. However, if your plan includes preventative benefits, the yellow fever vaccine will usually be covered and you may only need to cover the co-pay out-of-pocket.

  • Are video visits with travel vaccination specialists covered by my insurance?

    Telemedicine vaccine consultation coverage will vary depending on your circumstances. Typically, if your insurance will not cover an in-person visit, it won’t cover similar appointments via telehealth. Since the yellow fever vaccine is considered elective and in-person visits are not usually covered by medical insurance, it is unlikely video visits with travel vaccination specialists will be covered.
