I'm an RN and I don't like very many doctors. My first appointment with Dr. Weston was very impressive. He was extremely knowledgeable about my complicated medical history. He was thorough in explaining all my questions and concerns. His compassion with my "taking care of myself" was appreciated beyond words. I have never felt rushed or as if Dr. Weston wasn't completely listening to me. I completely trust Dr. Weston's evaluation and judgment. I could not have chosen a better provider. I've never had a problem with any staff member, but then again, my husband says I'm friendly. It doesn't take much, even when you're sick.

Doctors Care, Little River - 2246 Hwy 17, Little River
I have been to this facility in the past and also recently and have had wonderful experiences! This.past time I had a little bit of a wait but I did not sign in ahead and I think that would’ve improved matters. The care I received took care of my problem and they even called to check on me TWICE! The doctor was very pleasant. I would definitely recommend Doctors Care Walk-In in Little River, SC.

    Solv gathers reviews, ratings, and other data on Whiteville-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 Whiteville 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 Whiteville?

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

    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 Whiteville-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.

Whiteville 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.
