CDC: Beware Brazil yellow fever outbreak


Dr. Cetron reemphasized that unvaccinated individuals planning to vacation in Brazil may want to reconsider their travel plans.

“People who have never been vaccinated against yellow fever should not travel to the areas in Brazil affected by the outbreak. Particularly the hot spot of Ilha Grande.”

Information for clinicians and travelers is available on the travel notice portion of the CDC site. The travel notice for Brazil includes a map of the yellow fever–affected areas in Brazil, as well as other informational resources.

The related CDC Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report is available online.
