Study Title:

Controlled Study of Immunogenicity and Safety of the Investigational vYF Candidate Vaccine in Comparison to YF-VAX in Adults

What is the purpose of the study?

This study is looking to describe the safety and tolerability of a novel Yellow Fever vaccine. Yellow Fever is a mosquito-borne disease that is caused by a virus that causes a wide range of health problems, from mild symptoms to severe illness. Yellow Fever is widespread in sub-Saharan Africa and tropical South America and continues to be a significant health problem to many residents and non-vaccinated travelers of these regions. This vaccine is expected to help prevent Yellow Fever as there is no specific treatment for it.
