Customer Question

I have had the yellow fever injection last Thursday and yesterday I have been feeling terrible. I've got a really bad fever, headache, muscle aches etc. From research I am aware that mild fever can occur in very few people, however this seems a lot worse than mild. Is this a problem or do I just need to ride it out? Thanks

James, yes such reaction can follow from this live virus vaccine in some individuals. But vaccine is needed and so please bear. Please see physician for assessment and drug like ibuprofen etc.
