Yellow Fever

Yellow fever is a rare disease, due in large part to travelers receiving the vaccination prior to traveling to areas where yellow fever occurs, typically in Africa and South America.

If you are traveling outside of the U.S., turn to the Travel Medicine Services team at Jefferson. Our services are comprehensive and convenient. Based on where you plan to journey, we can advise you of the precautions you should take and administer the needed vaccinations – all in one visit to our Center City Philadelphia office. During your visit, our team will also provide helpful hints to keep you healthy before and during your trip.

Making an Appointment

Although it's ideal to schedule your appointment six to eight weeks before your departure date, if you're leaving sooner, please don't assume you cannot or should not seek care. Appointments for Travel Medicine Services are available on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays. To schedule a consultation, please call 215-955-0860.
