Yellow Fevor shot and Reactions

Jump to last reply

Will be going on Safari to Tanzania and Kenya next July with OAT and , as you all know, YF shots are required. I have read that incidence of severe reaction in over 60 age group is a fair amount higher than in younger age 4-5 per 100,000 vs 1-2 per 100,000 in younger group. What are most common reactions to the shot?
Any thoughts or opinions regarding this?
Read somewhere that one over 60 must first get primary doc's written approval to get the shot and then must go to a "Travel Doc" approved by CDC to get the shot.....and it could be costly. Think my Blue Cross under Medicare willl cover most of cost.
