Welcome to Northcote Medical, we offer the Yellow Fever vaccine to protect against this potentially dangerous viral infection.

Yellow Fever is a viral illness transmitted through mosquito bites in certain parts of South America and Africa. The symptoms can range from mild to severe and include fever, muscle pain, nausea, and in severe cases, it can lead to liver and kidney failure, causing death.

Who Should Get the Yellow Fever Vaccine?

Travellers to High-Risk Areas
