Yellow Fever Vaccine shortage

It has been advised that in August 2013 Sanofi Pasteur MSD, the sole global manufacturer of the Yellow Fever vaccine, experienced an unforeseen delay in the manufacturing of the vaccine, which is expected to continue into 2014. This may have an impact on travel to Africa, particularly over the peak travel periods. All visitors wishing to travel into Zambia (e.g. to view the Victoria Falls or partake in activities offered on the Zambian side) are therefore urged to plan their vaccines well in advance of travel.
