from what i have heard most folks are going without vaccines to panama
i would check noonsite to see if there are any outbreaks as well a s WHO. if they show yellow fever to be an active issue, i would consider the vaccine.
i WOULD go to my nearest farmacia to pick up some antiviral medicine. acyclovir. they sell it over the counter. 400 mg.
i use prophylactically when i am skeeter bit. there are many funky viruses riding on skeeters--malaria, zika,dengue, and chikungunya.
as the med stops viruses from replicating, i figger it cannot hurt.
is sold autan, should be used for repelling skeeters.
screens in all ports
i have not heard of any yellow fever issues since i left san diego
, many friends have gone to panama without issues. and without vaccines.
addendum...i googled yellow fever outbreaks panama--here is what i found----(among other entries)
