Yellow Fever Vaccination
The World Health Organisation (WHO) has revised the Yellow Fever vaccination recommendations for Africa. The South African Department of Health has subsequently issued a statement that all travelers from Zambia to South Africa, and travelers that have recently visited Zambia, 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.
Please note that there is sadly a high prevalence of HIV in Africa and abstinence or safe sex is highly recommended. There is no vaccination for HIV.
