The Ministry of Public Health reports that the location of vaccinations against yellow fever is increasing. People traveling to areas at risk of contracting this disease can place doses at the Health and Transportation Border (ex-Paludic), which is located on General G emes Street 125, in the capital Salta, on Tuesday and Thursday, from 9 o'clock up to 12, with shifts requested on the same day of 8.

At the Mother and Child General Hospital (women and children up to the age of 14 years), from Monday to Friday, from 8.30 to 13.30 in sequence.

San Bernardo Hospital, Tuesday and Thursday, from 8am to 13pm, and Friday, from 8am to 1pm and from 4pm to 6pm, immunization is based on the order of arrival.

This vaccine is determined for people between the ages of 1 and 59 who travel to areas at risk of yellow fever (among other countries, Brazil, Paraguay, Colombia, Bolivia, Peru) and who do not have immunization against this disease.

People over the age of 60 are more at risk of experiencing potentially serious adverse reactions to vaccination, so it is not recommended and a release certificate will be issued to the health authorities who need it.

This vaccine is contraindicated in pregnant women, mothers who breastfeed children under one year, hypersensitivity to chicken eggs or proteins, immunosuppression by HIV, cancer, thymus disease, myasthenia gravis, immunosuppressive therapy, or radiotherapy.

Yellow fever is a viral disease that is transmitted through the bite of certain mosquito species. There is no treatment. It starts suddenly, with lots of fever, cold and headaches. In addition, muscle pain, nausea and vomiting can appear. That can cause death.
