 There has been a shortage of Yellow Fever vaccine in the United States, as the U.S.-licensed vaccine, YF-VAX, is not being manufactured by Sanofi Pasteur at this time. This shortage is expected to continue until mid-2018.

 FDOH-Lee is participating in a program to administer Stamaril, which is a Yellow Fever vaccine from the same manufacturer, and has been licensed for more than 30 years, and is used in more than 70 countries.

  • Since Stamaril vaccine is not licensed in the United States, use of Stamaril vaccine is being allowed under an Expanded Access Investigational New Drug Program (EAP).
  • Because an EAP is similar to a clinical trial, it is required to follow the Code of Federal Regulations, the same regulations used for research.
  • The FDA has reviewed quality, efficacy and safety data related to Stamaril vaccine and has given Sanofi Pasteur permission to temporarily use Stamaril vaccine in place of YF-VAX vaccine.

 There is a process for determining eligibility for, and administration of Stamaril vaccine under this EAP.

  • All clients requesting Stamaril vaccine will be screened by a nurse in the Immunizations Department to establish eligibility. When a client is determined to be eligible, an appointment will be made for the client to come in and complete an Informed Consent Form, to received counseling regarding the vaccine, and to receive the vaccine.
  • Stamaril will only be administered to clients who have been screened by an Immunizations nurse, and who have a specific appointment for the purpose of receiving Stamaril vaccine.
  • Please call the Appointment Line at 239-461-6100 to begin the process required to determine eligibility and receive Stamaril vaccine.

Please note: Clients requesting an immunization record only may walk in during the following hours:

Monday - Thursday
8:00 a.m. - 12:00 p.m.
1:00 p.m. - 3:30 p.m.

Friday
1:00 p.m. - 3:30 p.m.

When traveling outside the United States, it is important to ensure your health is protected. Many of the diseases that have been eliminated through immunizations in the United States are still common in other parts of the world.

The Florida Department of Health in Lee County administers adult vaccines, including immunizations for international travel, such as Yellow Fever and Typhoid, plus information regarding non-vaccine preventable illness treatments like anti-malaria medicine. In addition, DOH-Lee provides critical information for travelers on general safety issues, travel alerts and up to date health information from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

Travelers are encouraged to check the recommended or required vaccines as soon as travel plans are made. It can take several weeks or months to complete the series of vaccinations on the Vaccination Schedule. Travel vaccines are preferably given at least one month before travel. As soon as you know you will be traveling outside the US, we recommend that you make an appointment to see a nurse for travel vaccines and counseling, so call well ahead of your planned departure date.

Please bring all immunization and travel records with you. Advise the nurse of your status regarding:

  • any known allergies
  • previous vaccine reactions
  • pregnancy or breast feeding
Appointments can be made by calling 239-461-6100. Please arrive 30 minutes prior to your scheduled appointment time to complete registration. We accept cash, check, MasterCard, VISA and Discover for payment of vaccines.
