Navigating the Global Yellow Fever Vaccine Shortage: Barnet Travel Clinic’s Response

hello travellers!

Unfortunately due to a worldwide shortage of yellow fever vaccines, we’ll be raising our prices on our very short stock as the cost price is through the roof. We’ll return to our regular pricing on yellow fever once the shortage has alleviated


The world is currently grappling with an unprecedented challenge—a worldwide shortage of yellow fever vaccines. This scarcity has posed a significant hurdle for public health institutions, including Barnet Travel Clinic. As responsible healthcare providers, we understand the importance of vaccinations in safeguarding individuals from preventable diseases. However, the unfortunate situation demands some difficult decisions to ensure equitable distribution of the limited vaccine stock. With a heavy heart, Barnet Travel Clinic announces that we will be raising the prices of yellow fever vaccines on our very short stock due to the soaring cost price. Nevertheless, we assure our valued clients that we will revert to our normal pricing as soon as the shortage has been alleviated.

Understanding the Yellow Fever Vaccine Shortage

Yellow fever is a viral disease transmitted by infected mosquitoes and can lead to severe symptoms, including high fever, jaundice, and even death. Vaccination is crucial in controlling the spread of this disease, particularly for individuals travelling to high-risk regions.

The shortage of yellow fever vaccines is not limited to Barnet Travel Clinic alone; it is a global concern that has impacted the entire healthcare sector. Several factors contribute to this scarcity, including supply chain disruptions, production challenges, and increased demand in regions facing outbreaks. As a result, the cost of acquiring these limited doses has skyrocketed, presenting significant financial challenges for healthcare providers.

Our Ethical Approach

At Barnet Travel Clinic, our primary objective has always been to prioritize the health and safety of our clients. Despite the financial pressures brought on by the yellow fever vaccine shortage, we remain committed to maintaining our high-quality service standards and ethical practices.

The decision to raise prices on our limited stock was not made lightly. It is essential to strike a delicate balance between making vaccines available to those who need them most urgently and ensuring the clinic’s financial sustainability. By adjusting the prices, we can continue to operate and provide essential healthcare services while diligently monitoring the situation.

Transparency and Communication

We understand that the news of raised vaccine prices may be concerning to our clients. To uphold our commitment to transparency, we want to keep our valued customers well-informed throughout this challenging period. Our team will communicate openly about the current vaccine availability, pricing adjustments, and any updates on the global vaccine supply.

Working Towards a Solution

Barnet Travel Clinic is actively working with international health organizations, vaccine manufacturers, and government agencies to address the yellow fever vaccine shortage. We are exploring various avenues to procure additional doses and mitigate the impact of the cost increase on our clients.

Hope for the Future

Despite the current challenges, we firmly believe that this situation is temporary. As soon as the global yellow fever vaccine supply stabilizes, we will promptly return to our normal pricing. Our goal remains steadfast—to provide affordable and accessible vaccinations to all travellers in need, promoting health and safety across the globe.


The worldwide shortage of yellow fever vaccines has placed the healthcare industry in uncharted territory. Barnet Travel Clinic understands the importance of vaccinations and their role in safeguarding public health. As we navigate this challenging time, we remain committed to serving our clients with integrity, transparency, and compassion.

We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience the temporary price increase may cause and express our gratitude for your continued support. Together, we can overcome this crisis and emerge stronger, ensuring a healthier future for all.
