Is there a yellow fever vaccine shortage?

Following a multi-year shortage, in April 2021, the FDA-licensed yellow fever vaccine, YF-Vax (Sanofi) resumed availability for purchase in the United States. Providers with a current Yellow Fever Vaccination Stamp issued by their state or territorial health department may order YF-VAX from the manufacturer.

Locations that administer yellow fever vaccine can be found on CDC’s yellow fever vaccination clinic search page at

Healthcare providers should refer to the section titled “Yellow Fever and Malaria Information, by Country,” in CDC Health Information for International Travel 2024 (“The Yellow Book”) for information about the countries that require yellow fever vaccination for entry and the countries where CDC recommends yellow fever vaccination. If a country does not have an entry requirement, CDC does not recommend yellow fever vaccination if the traveler’s itinerary does not include travel to a yellow fever–endemic area.
