Tourist in Bolivia infected with yellow fever
A Danish tourist who became infected with yellow fever in the semi-tropical region of the Yungas (city of Caranavi) is the first case of this infection detected in the past 10 years.
Travellers to areas where there is a risk of exposure to yellow fever can reduce that risk by obtaining a yellow fever vaccination 10 days before travelling. In addition, travellers should take all necessary precautions to avoid mosquito bites. Travellers are reminded that many other countries require proof of yellow fever vaccination upon arrival for all travellers equal to or greater than 9-12 months of age arriving from a country where there is a risk of yellow fever.
