Yellow Fever is a mosquito-borne viral disease. It occurs in sub-Saharan Africa (where it is endemic), countries in South America, Panama, Trinidad and Tobago. The Yellow fever vaccine is also recommended for travel outside the urban areas of countries which do not officially report the disease, but which lie in the Yellow Fever endemic zone. International regulations require proof of Yellow Fever vaccination for travel to and from certain countries. For purposes of international travel, Yellow Fever vaccine must be approved by the WHO and administered by an approved Yellow Fever Vaccination Center. After receiving the Yellow Fever vaccine you will receive an International Certificate of Vaccination (ICV) completed, signed and validated with the official stamp. The certificate is valid for ten years. Booster doses are recommended every ten years. Because this is a live vaccination, it is contraindicated in some immune deficient conditions.
