It's the main reason why we highly recommend to visit us in London to get vaccinated against yellow fever before travelling.
These are areas where the virus is present in monkeys and is a potential risk to humans as defined by the World Health Organisation.
Some of these countries demande a yellow fever certificate from travellers as a condition of entry to their country. Many of these, and other countries, will ask you for a certificate if you are entering from an infected country.
We can inform you if you need a certificate when you are booking your holiday or flight. Come and get vaccinated against Yellow Fever in London if not already done.
