I live directly across from their building. I have a primary doctor, but his hours are limited so I began going to urgent care for those minor little things that need addressing, but my doctor wasn’t available. Hands down the best office staff I’ve ever seen. Best nurses. Dr. Ollie.llI live directly across from their building. I have a primary doctor, but his hours are limited so I began going to urgent care for those minor little things that need addressing, but my doctor wasn’t available. Hands down the best office staff I’ve ever seen. Best nurses. Dr. Ali is someone who has never once rush me made me feel silly for dumb questions. It always leaves. Is there anything else you need. I completely trust him. He is not a man, nor have I ever asked frankly, to prescribe narcotics, so if that’s what you want this isn’t the place to go. I don’t want those things so I’m happy with them and God bless him for that there’s a female doctor. Unfortunately I don’t know her name. I’ve seen her twice and it was an emergency emergency and I don’t like her and I now call ahead to make sure she’s not there. It was a complete waste of time. Her diagnosis was completely wrong, and in the wrong direction I know that because the next day I went to the real emergency room and the day after that my physician, and I had a very serious problem that she didn’t even talk to me about. Plus she absolutely has the personality of cardboard so now I just call ahead and ask who’s there. Today Dr. Ali wasn’t in but I got to meet the actual owner and he was amazing. I would be remiss not to mention Champaign Pharmacy within the building at first they were convenient because they were there and I had a prescription and I had them fill it. I’m a senior, and I do take several medication‘s. I learned that they deliver them. Ali, the pharmacist and Sarah of the tech are two of the dearest people. I basically would call them my friends that I don’t go out and party with but if I partied I would actually take them with me lol if you need a good pharmacy people understand listen and help you take them and give them a try. As far as the doctors bedside manner, the owner who I met today, and Dr. Ali, we’re amazing. And thank probably to Dr. Ali’s frustration. I always make him hug me. I didn’t do that to the new guy today because he doesn’t know me lol the female let you know back off I’m untouchable nothing I would want to, but back off I’m gonna touchable let’s get this over with. I heard they were going to get a primary physician in there boy I hope she’s not that person. It would just bring the facility down honestly. I’m not trying to be mean I’m just telling the straight up truth. I never pre-book appointments I just walk in and sign in. There’s never a wait and if there is, it’s very short. Let’s be honest they are urgent care. They can’t do all the things that an emergency room can do. That’s why it’s called urgent care. It’s not because they’re not skilled or don’t want to do further things. It’s because they’re not set up at As a facility for that. These are great doctors helping people who need something now and if you don’t like these people I’m talking about there’s totally something wrong with you. No comment about the female doctor. The truth is, I’ve spent About 28 years working in the legal career field when doing that everybody tends to get the attitude over the years and get them before they get me. Frankly it’s inevitable that’s what you do and live with every day so I have no problem complaining as you can see about the female doctor. But I try really hard and people are exemplar order really out of their way to make a point to share that with others in whatever way that would benefit them best. And that’s what this is all about I can totally complain, and make things really difficult for some. But I want to really really double Double down on that and say the complete opposite that these are wonderful folks give them a chance

Melvindale 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 Melvindale?

    In general, yellow fever vaccines will be available at Melvindale-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.

  • 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 Melvindale 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 Melvindale?

    While a yellow fever vaccine cannot be administered over video, your doctor can evaluate and advise you or your child from your home in Melvindale. 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 Melvindale?

    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 Melvindale-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.
