The Monmouth County Health Department is currently out of yellow fever vaccine due to Sanofi Pasteur, the manufacturer of the only yellow fever vaccine (YF-Vax) licensed in the United States, being unable to produce the vaccine until the end of 2018 or early 2019.
Because of a total depletion of YF-Vax, the manufacturer (Sanofi Pasteur) has worked with CDC and the US Food and Drug Administration to make an alternative yellow fever vaccine, Stamaril, available at select locations until YF-Vax supply returns, which is expected by the end of 2018. To find a location please go to: https://wwwnc.cdc.gov/travel/page/search-for-stamaril-clinics
