Yellow Fever Outbreak in Brazil Prompts WHO Travel Advice


This is especially so if visiting the state of São Paulo. However, Embratur adds

The Brazilian Tourist Board, Embratur, has reiterated the advice of the World Health Organization that tourists, whether Brazilian or foreign, should undergo a vaccination against the yellow fever at least ten days before travelling to Brazil.

This is especially so if visiting the state of São Paulo. However, Embratur adds there are no restrictions on travels to Brazil, as this simple precaution measure helps to ensure the safety of both tourists and locals.      

Since 2016, seven million people in Brazil have been immunized against yellow fever, and the Brazilian government plans to vaccinate the entire population by the end of 2018.

A targeted yellow fever vaccination campaign is currently underway, focusing on the most critical areas. These include municipalities in the states São Paulo, Rio de Janeiro and Bahia.

Before departure, foreigners should look for registered vaccination centers in their countries in order to obtain the immunization. The yellow fever vaccine provides lifelong protection for most people.
