  • For details, see the Yellow Fever section earlier in this chapter. (cdc.gov)
  • Ultimately, the clinician's decision whether or not to vaccinate any traveler must take into account the traveler's risk of being infected with YFV, country entry requirements, and individual risk factors for serious adverse events after yellow fever vaccination (such as age and immune status). (cdc.gov)
