How is yellow fever spread?
Jungle yellow fever can be spread through infected mosquitoes and monkeys in tropical rainforests. This type is rare. Urban yellow fever is spread through the Aedes aegypti mosquito, which carries the virus from human to human.
How do I protect myself from yellow fever?
To protect yourself from yellow fever, you must be vaccinated with a safe and effective vaccine. The single-dose live yellow fever vaccine is recommended for people 9 months old and older.
What do I do if I think I have yellow fever?
If you think you have yellow fever, consult your doctor, describe your symptoms to them, and tell them about your travel history.
How is a yellow fever infection diagnosed?
Yellow fever infection can be easily confused with malaria, typhoid, rickettsial, dengue, viral hepatitis, and leptospirosis. To confirm a possible yellow fever case, a blood test and laboratory analysis are needed.
How is yellow fever treated?
Yellow fever has no specific treatment yet. Symptoms, however, can be treated with IV fluids, dialysis, and blood transfusion if it involves severe bleeding.
Does my insurance cover my primary care appointment?
At Nao Medical, we accept most major insurance plans, but in order to know if your plan covers the test, we would need to run your insurance and this can only be done at the beginning of your visit. If you would like to know ahead of time, please call the number on the back of your insurance card so a representative may let you know which coronavirus test is covered by your insurance plan.

The staff and the doctors were all very kind and caring. I was very worried about my child’s health. I appreciate your clinic being open on Saturdays. This saved us a trip to the ER, which can be scary for a child. Thank you again!

My visits have been fantastic both times I’ve gone. The woman at the front desk was courteous and professional, and prompt. The nurse was excellent. Same treatment as the front desk and the smoothest phlebotomist going. The doctor was great, calm, thorough, polite, and knowledgeable. I wish he were my GP. Overall? 11 out of 10.

My daughter came in with stomach pain, and your doctor was able to diagnose that she probably had appendicitis. I took her to the emergency room, and she did have to have her appendix removed. Thank you so much for your help.

I’ve been to Nao Medical, I think, three times, and their staff is delightful. If you are in dire pain, they take you in as soon as possible, if not sooner. The offices and exam rooms are spotless. All of the medical staff is very knowledgeable, patient, and understanding. I highly recommend it.
