#1. We currently cannot get Yellow Fever vaccine.  It is not currently available in the U.S.  The manufacturer informed us that it will not be available until mid-late 2018. To address the need for Yellow Fever vaccination, the FDA has approved the use of Stamaril, a European version of the vaccine. The FDA has only approved and authorized 250 clinics throughout the U.S. to administer this vaccination. See https://wwwnc.cdc.gov/travel/page/search-for-stamaril-clinics . 

#2. We are currently not ordering Gardasil vaccine because single doses are no longer available.  It must be ordered as a box of 5 doses.  This makes it too cost prohibitive for us because we cannot use it all before it expires.  Gardasil is readily available for vaccination at most Walgreens, CVS, Rite Aid pharmacies, as well as your local Minute Clinic.


The Vaccine Information Statement (VIS) for each vaccine listed above is available in English and many other languages on the Centers for Disease Control & Prevention website.  Click
