Yellow fever vaccine shortage

The Department of Health is warning yellow fever vaccinations are in short supply in the Isle of Man at the moment.

It says there's been an 'interruption' to supplies since July, with that expected to be the case until at least January next year.

The advice is, if you are looking at booking a holiday to a country where yellow fever is present and vaccination is required, perhaps consider a different destination where your health would not be at such risk.

The department says the same applies for business travel.
