Yellow fever outbreak in Brazil

Brazil has been experiencing a yellow fever outbreak since January 2017 and WHO has updated vaccination requirements and recommendations for international travellers accordingly. 

The risk of yellow fever transmission in the EU/EEA is currently considered very low. Travellers to areas at risk of yellow fever in South America should be aware of the risk and should check their vaccination status.

ECDC is monitoring the outbreak and regularly assessing the risk of importation and spread in Europe.
