Yellow Fever Vaccine NO LONGER NEEDED
I received the following message from Ross regarding "yellow fever shots."
I checked on the CDC web page and Yellow Fever is now not required for Cuzco and Machu Picchu. This is a change over the last six months and it must be based on the fact that Yellow Fever is no longer in these zones at al and has not been for some time. It was still required by the CDC six months ago when I last checked. Can you alert your parents to this change? Thanks for sending this along. I still would recommend the Typhoid booster, however, though parents should always follow the advice of their doctor. Ross
