 Yellow Fever vaccine shortage

The nation is currently under a Yellow Fever vaccine (YFVAX) shortage that is expected to last until mid-2018. Garfield County Public Health no longer has YFVAX available. Please keep in mind that international travelers need to obtain the Yellow Fever vaccine at least 10 days prior to traveling. At this time, patients will need to travel to the Denver area to obtain a Yellow Fever vaccine. In Denver, they will be offered Stamaril Yellow Fever vaccine.
