Information

Information about Yellow Fever

Yellow Fever is a serious but relatively rare tropical disease caused by infection with the yellow fever virus. The virus enters the bloodstream through mosquito bites and can then spread throughout the body. Vaccination is the only effective protection against Yellow Fever. It is given in the form of an injection which gives protection for at least 10 years. The vaccination is effective 10 days after the injection is given.

Information about Japanese Encephalitis

Japanese encephalitis is a viral infection that is transmitted by mosquitoes. In most cases the patient will have no symptoms or they may appear to have a kind of flu with fever, muscle aches and a headache. In severe cases an inflammation of the membranes of the brain can occur. Those at greatest risk are persons staying in the countryside for a period of time during the peak season for the disease. Discuss with the vaccination clinic whether or not a vaccination is advisable in your individual case.

Information about Dengue

Dengue is a mosquito-borne viral disease accompanied by high fever, headache and muscle aches. A rash also often occurs. There is no treatment for Dengue and in general patients recover well with time. The mosquito that transmits dengue is active during the day. Taking appropriate measures to prevent mosquito bites is an effective way to protect against the disease.
