YELLOW FEVER & MALARIA VACCINATION
The virus that causes yellow fever is spread from person to person by infected mosquitoes. When it comes to warding off yellow fever, one of the most essential things you can do is steer clear of getting bitten by mosquitoes. For further information, please see the page dedicated to yellow fever.
The vaccination against yellow fever offers protection against the disease. After receiving the vaccination, you will be provided with a yellow fever vaccine certificate as evidence that you have been immunized against yellow fever and are therefore protected against illness. This certificate has been formatted to fit inside of your passport, and it is valid for the rest of your life.
There are two main arguments in favor of recommending the vaccine:
In order to prevent you from becoming infected with yellow fever virus if you travel to a country where the disease is prevalent. Visit the websites dedicated specifically to each nation if you want special information about your visit.
to stop the contagious sickness from spreading from country to country across the globe. Countries that require confirmation of vaccination are those in which the illness is either endemic, meaning that it already exists there, or potentially endemic, meaning that they have the appropriate species of mosquito and monkey that are capable of harboring the infection.
Travelers moving between nations that have yellow fever and countries where it could be transmitted are typically asked to present proof that they have been vaccinated (and sometimes for travellers transiting through such countries).
