In brief: Yellow fever

It generally takes about 2 weeks or more to build up antibodies following immunization, and therefore you should get your vaccine immediately.
Good luck and have a great trip. By the way, there is some evidence that yellow fever vaccine may modulate the course of chicungunya virus infection as well.
