Service Details

What is Yellow Fever?

Yellow fever is a viral illness that causes fever and jaundice (yellowing of the skin and eye). Yellow fever is caused when the female mosquito (aedes aegypti species) injects the virus that causes the yellow fever disease.
Yellow fever does not exist in the continental US. However, if you are traveling abroad into a country that has yellow fever, you can get the yellow fever disease.
Once infected, it only takes 3 to 6 days for symptoms to develop, including fever, chills, headache, backache, and muscle aches. It is available only at CDC designated travel clinics.

About our primary care services

With Nao Medical's primary care, you can either walk in or make an appointment ahead of time. You can visit our urgent care or walk-in medical clinics near you during operating hours. We're open seven days a week and closed only if NYS declares an emergency.

Before booking your appointment please note:

Ensure that your insurance benefits include urgent care or contact us to confirm if your individual/group insurance plan is eligible for use. Please dial 911 immediately if your medical problem appears to be life-threatening.

How is yellow fever spread?

Jungle yellow fever can be spread through infected mosquitoes and monkeys in tropical rainforests. This type is rare. Urban yellow fever is spread through the Aedes aegypti mosquito, which carries the virus from human to human.

How do I protect myself from yellow fever?

To protect yourself from yellow fever, you must be vaccinated with a safe and effective vaccine. The single-dose live yellow fever vaccine is recommended for people 9 months old and older.

What do I do if I think I have yellow fever?

If you think you have yellow fever, consult your doctor, describe your symptoms to them, and tell them about your travel history.

How is a yellow fever infection diagnosed?

Yellow fever infection can be easily confused with malaria, typhoid, rickettsial, dengue, viral hepatitis, and leptospirosis. To confirm a possible yellow fever case, a blood test and laboratory analysis are needed.

How is yellow fever treated?

Yellow fever has no specific treatment yet. Symptoms, however, can be treated with IV fluids, dialysis, and blood transfusion if it involves severe bleeding.

Does my insurance cover my primary care appointment?

At Nao Medical, we accept most major insurance plans, but in order to know if your plan covers the test, we would need to run your insurance and this can only be done at the beginning of your visit. If you would like to know ahead of time, please call the number on the back of your insurance card so a representative may let you know which coronavirus test is covered by your insurance plan.
