Africa Risk Areas for Yellow Fever Virus Transmission

Your travel agent should inform you if you need a certificate when you are booking your holiday or flight. You can double check if in doubt with your local yellow fever vaccination centre.

Map is from the following publication: Jentes ES. Poumerol G, Gershman MD, et al. The revised global yellow fever risk map and recommendations for vaccination, 2010: consensus of the Informal WHO Working Group on Geographic Risk for Yellow Fever. Lancet Infect Dis. 2011;11:622-32.

1 Countries/areas where “a risk of yellow fever transmission is present,” as defined by the World Health Organization, are countries or areas where “yellow fever has been reported currently or in the past, plus vectors and animal reservoirs currently exist”.

2 These countries are not holoendemic (only a portion of the country has risk of yellow fever transmission).

Countries with low potential for exposure to yellow fever virus (YFV)1

  • Eritrea2
  • Somalia2
  • Zambia2
  • São Tomé and Príncipe
  • Tanzania

1 Countries listed in this table are not contained on the official WHO list of countries with risk of YFV transmission.
