Get Your Yellow Fever Vaccination at Miles Pharmacy
Are you travelling to a high-risk country for Yellow Fever? If you are travelling to Africa or certain countries in South and Central America you will need to get the Yellow Fever vaccination at an accredited Yellow Fever Vaccination Centre such as Miles Pharmacy. We offer all travel vaccinations and can also provide the Yellow Fever Vaccination Certificate as proof that you are immunised.
Travelling the globe is one of life’s greatest experiences and joys. Visiting different places and experiencing different cultures is very exciting but unfortunately, it does come with some increased health risks. Travelling unprotected can dramatically increase your chances of getting a serious or even fatal disease such as Yellow Fever.
A consultation with an expert travel nurse at one of our Miles Pharmacy Travel Clinics and a couple of vaccinations could be the difference between you staying healthy and enjoying your holiday and you being seriously ill. We are located in Epsom, servicing areas Banstead, Sutton, Stoneleigh, Cheam, Chessington, and Worcester Park.
What Is Yellow Fever?
Yellow fever is a serious, potentially deadly flu-like disease spread by mosquitoes infected by Aedes aegypti. Yellow Fever is characterised by a dangerously high fever and jaundice. Jaundice is the yellowing of the skin and eyes, which is why it is called Yellow Fever. The good news is that the disease is preventable with a single dose of the Yellow Fever vaccine which provides immunity for life.

- Muscle aches, particularly in your back and knees.
- Sensitivity to light.
