1 dose of yellow fever vaccine is recommended for people who work in laboratories with the yellow fever virus.
Laboratory workers with ongoing exposure to yellow fever virus should have their neutralising antibody titres measured if their last vaccine dose was 10 years ago or more. This is to check that they have maintained protective antibody levels.
If antibody titres cannot be measured, laboratory workers are recommended to receive a booster dose every 10 years.
