Safe Yellow fever vaccine?

A friend informed me that they had to have a yellow fever certificate to travel. They are compelled (mandated) to receive the vaccine if they wish to get their travel visa, so I decided to look at adverse reactions.
Worst case scenario: Risk getting Yellow Fever-induced haemorrhagic fever or vaccine-induced “Yellow Fever Vaccine-Associated Viscerotropic Disease (YEL-AVD)”.

Yellow Fever factsheet
Signs and symptoms
YF varies in severity. The infection has an incubation period (time from infected mosquito feeding and symptoms developing) of three to six days. Initial symptoms include myalgia (muscle pain), pyrexia (high temperature), headache, anorexia (lack of appetite), nausea, and vomiting. In many patients there will be improvement in symptoms and gradual recovery three to four days after the onset of symptoms.

Within 24 hours of an apparent recovery, 15 to 25 percent of patients progress to a more serious illness. This takes the form of an acute haemorrhagic fever, in which there may be bleeding from the mouth, eyes, ears, and stomach, pronounced jaundice (yellowing of the skin, from which the disease gets its name), and renal (kidney) damage. The patient develops shock and there is deterioration of major organ function; 20 to 50 percent of patients who develop this form of the disease do not survive [18]. Infection results in lifelong immunity in those who recover.

“Reactions to YF vaccine are usually mild and short lived. They include myalgia (muscle pain), headache, and low-grade fever, typically occurring during the first five to ten days post vaccination, and will affect 10-30% of recipients.

Serious adverse events are rare and fall into three main categories: hypersensitivity reactions, vaccine-associated neurologic disease (YEL-AND) and vaccine-associated viscerotropic disease (YEL-AVD).

Hypersensitivity reactions
“The vaccine is propagated in chick embryos. The SPC for Stamaril® (the only YF vaccine used in the UK) lists sorbitol and lactose as excipients. Anaphylaxis (serious allergic reaction), because of sensitivity to either egg or other vaccine components, is estimated to occur at an incidence of 1.3 cases/100,000 doses distributed (US data) [21].”

Yellow Fever Vaccine-Associated Neurologic Disease (YEL-AND)
Post-vaccine encephalitis – encephalitis is an uncommon but serious condition in which the brain becomes inflamed (swollen) -has been recognised as a rare event since the early use of the vaccine. Cases were reported in very young infants during the 1950s (when there was no age restriction for vaccine administration). In the 1960s, when vaccine use was restricted to babies aged over six months, reduced numbers of post vaccine encephalitis were reported [6].”

Yellow Fever Vaccine-Associated Viscerotropic Disease (YEL-AVD)
“YF vaccine-associated viscerotropic disease (YEL-AVD) is a syndrome of fever and multi-organ failure that resembles severe YF disease;

One to eighteen days (median four days) following vaccination [12], patients with YEL-AVD develop fever, malaise, headache, and myalgia that progress to hepatitis (inflammation of the liver), hypotension (low blood pressure), and multi-organ failure. Death has occurred in more than 60 percent of reported cases worldwide [6]”

So to sum up,  15% to 25% non-vaccinated people -depending on their general health/vitality/life style – will develop the more serious version of Yellow Fever, which looks very much like like the vaccine-induced Yellow Fever Vaccine-Associated Viscerotropic Disease (YEL-AVD)! Also note that serious Yellow Fever infection leads to haemorrhagic fever.
Haemorrhagic Fever? Similar family to Ebola, Marburg and Lassa fever. It then begs the question on false positives. Would I get a positive response for Ebola (re:Congo) if I had Yellow Fever? The PCR test as the basis for commercial testing is flawed as pointed out by Jon Rappaport: The gold standard of medical tests is fake

London’s Royal Free Hospital: High level isolation unit

The Royal Free Hospital has the UK’s only high level isolation unit (HLIU), used for the treatment of infectious diseases.

The HLIU is run by a dedicated team of doctors, nurses and laboratory staff from the Royal Free London infectious diseases service. It was set up at the Royal Free Hospital in 2006 and has since looked after several cases of viral haemorrhagic fever.
