How long can i wait after mixing the Yellow Fever Vaccine & reconstituting it?

Q: We reconstituted a dose of Stamaril vaccine, but the client was unable to take the same due to some reason. How long can I keep this liquid vaccine?
Ans. You have to discard any unused dose of a reconstituted Yellow Fever Vaccine after 1 hour at most. It is a very unstable vaccine after the diluent is mixed with the vaccine, and we need to use it as soon as possible. Any longer & it may not work, and more importantly may potentially lead to side-effects.
