Yellow Fever

Hi, can anyone advise us whether we should have the Yellow Fever vaccination. We are going to The Galapagos Islands, Quito, the cloud forest, and Riobamba and Cuenca. In July this year. Any advise??

Many thanks Popperoo ;o)

You only require the vaccination if you're spending time in the rainforest or along the coast.

Hi there, thanks for that.............bit worried as some countries require a certificate if you have been to another country that has Yellow Fever. So worried about our next trip to Mauritius next Easter. Regards Popperoo

Yellow fever vaccine recommendation: vaccination

is recommended when travelling to provinces

in the Amazon Basin (Orellana, Morona, Napo,

Pastaza, Sucumbíos and Zamora) and to other

areas in the eastern part of the Andes mountains.

There is no risk of yellow fever transmission in the

cities of Guayaquil and Quito or in the Galapagos

Islands.Found this info on the WHO website
