UNICEF provides a market update for yellow fever vaccine (YFV) and highlights the acute shortage in supply and increased weighted average price, against increasing demand and manufacturing difficulties.

Despite procuring all available vaccine, the demand forecast requirements exceed offers of supply through UNICEF by 44 per cent for 2014-15.

One manufacturer has been suspended from WHO prequalification, further reducing immediate availability, and requiring closer collaboration between UNICEF, WHO and PAHO in prioritising supply.
