A nationwide shortage of yellow fever vaccines is forcing provincial health regions to ration their remaining doses.

Full doses will be given to people who:

  • Are travelling to a country experiencing an outbreak.
  • Are travelling to a country that requires a vaccination to enter. 
  • Have been living in a yellow fever disease risk country for more than one year. 

Those who do not meet the criteria for a full dose will receive a partial dose, which may mean multiple trips to a clinic.

The first trip would be for an assessment and the second for a vaccine itself, which ensures no part of the vaccine is wasted. 

The vaccine is available through travel clinics in three cities: Regina, Saskatoon and Prince Albert.
