Travel Vaccine Information

Are you aware of which types of vaccinations you or those traveling with
you may need? Vaccines are one of the most important tools you have for
preventing certain diseases. Before you travel, review your vaccination history
and check to make sure you are up-to-date on the required vaccine.

Yellow Fever Vaccine Shortage

From mid-2017 to mid-2018, YF-VAX®, a yellow fever vaccine manufactured by Sanofi Pasteur, will not be available. During that time, STAMARIL®, another yellow fever vaccine, will be distributed to a limited number of yellow fever vaccination clinics. Because STAMARIL® is not licensed in the US, Sanofi worked with the FDA and the CDC to make it available through an Expanded Access Investigation New Drug Application.
Communication from Sanofi Announcing the Yellow Fever Vaccine Supply Shortage

RiverStone Health in Billings is Montana’s only clinic to receive doses of STAMARIL®. The link below provides guidance on managing yellow fever vaccine during the shortage and the process for referring patients to RiverStone Health for vaccination.
