URGENT: Yellow Fever Vaccination – Zambia | South Africa

May 31, 2011

The World Health Organization (WHO) has revised the Yellow Fever vaccination recommendations for Africa. The South African Department of Health has subsequently issued a statement that all travellers from South Africa to Zambia and travelers from Zambia to South Africa will now require proof of yellow fever vaccination.

Previously, this was not required.

All in-transit passengers between the two destinations, irrespective of the time period in transit, will also require proof of yellow fever vaccination.

There seems to be some discrepancy on the date of inception of the above recommendations and we encourage all travelers to treat this as effective immediately until further notice.
