Yellow fever vaccine available for Isle of Man residents

A vaccination which protects people from yellow fever is available again in the Isle of Man, health officials have announced.

A worldwide shortage of the vaccine had meant residents were unable to receive it after last July.

The viral disease is transmitted by several species of mosquito and causes about 30,000 deaths a year.

There are four registered Yellow Fever Vaccination Centres on the Isle of Man.
