What is yellow fever?

Yellow fever is a serious disease spread by an infected Aedes aegypti mosquito. It is found in parts of Africa, South America, Central America and Trinidad in the Caribbean. The mosquito is more likely to bite during daylight. It doesn’t spread from close contact with someone that has the disease. 

Key symptoms of yellow fever

Symptoms start to develop after 3 to 6 days of being bitten by an infected mosquito. The symptoms include:

  • temperature
  • Headache
  • Feeling sick or vomiting
  • Muscle pain
  • Backache
  • Loss of appetite 
  • eyes being sensitive to light

Up to a quarter of the cases develop more serious symptoms, such as:

  • Jaundice, yellowing of the skin and eyes
  • Bleeding from the mouth, nose, eyes or ears
  • Vomiting blood or blood in the stool.

If you are travelling in a region where yellow fever infection is found and you get the symptoms, seek medical help urgently. If you return from such a region and have symptoms, contact your GP or call 111 for help.
