Facts about yellow fever

Yellow fever in Brazil

The upsurge of human cases since December 2017 indicate increase in yellow fever virus circulation in Brazil. Most of the yellow fever cases have been reported from São Paulo, Rio de Janeiro and Minas Gerais states. 

The recent, higher than expected, number of yellow fever cases in unvaccinated travellers returning from Brazil highlights the increased need for travellers to Brazil to be aware of the importance of following international recommendations for vaccination.
