FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS(PREVENTIVE CARDIOLOGY CLINIC)
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONSQ. What is Yellow Fever?
Ans: Yellow fever is a viral disease transmitted by infected mosquitoes (Aedes species). Clinical picture varies from mild febrile illness to severe disease with jaundice and bleeding manifestations. The death rate in severe YF disease might reach 50%. It is difficult to diagnose during the early stages as clinical picture can be confused with severe malaria, dengue hemorrhagic fever, leptospirosis, viral hepatitis etc. There is no specific treatment for yellow fever and Vaccination is the most effective measure against yellow fever.
Q. How does the vaccine protect from YF?
The vaccine is safe and highly effective and protective immunity is achieved within 30 days for 99% of persons vaccinated. A single dose of yellow fever vaccine is sufficient to confer sustained immunity and life-long protection against yellow fever disease.
Q. What is the status of Yellow Fever in India?
Yellow fever cases are not detected in India but factors are conducive because of the presence of abundant Aedes mosquito and a large susceptible population. So Govt. of India has been maintaining strict vigil on international movement of passengers to prevent entry of Yellow Fever virus.
