Latest Yellow Fever Vaccination Recommendationsby Dalene Ingham-Brown

Yellow Fever in Africa

At the beginning of the year the World Health Organisation published their vaccination recommendations for 2011. Since then the South African Department of Health have recently altered their regulations. Zambia is a region whose regulations have specifically undergone adjustment.

Previously, no proof of a Yellow Fever vaccination was required for those travelling between South Africa and Zambia, but this has now changed: Yellow Fever vaccination proof is now needed. Bordering country Tanzania’s requirements are unchanged, which means that those travelling between Tanzania and South Africa will still require proof of Yellow Fever vaccination.

Passengers, between the two destinations, will also be required to provide proof of Yellow Fever vaccination regardless of how long they have been in-transit for. If you’re leaving for your journey tomorrow, not to worry, the regulation requirements are only expected to be enforced from July 1, 2011. However, for obvious safety reasons its best to get a Yellow Fever vaccination as soon as possible before departure. Any questions? Contact the team at OverlandingAfrica.com

LATEST UPDATE: In July 2011, South African Department of Health (SADH) would like to make it clear that travellers DO NOT require a yellow fever certificate for travel between South Africa and Zambia.
