(Brief recommendations for travelers)
Yellow fever vaccination
Yellow fever vaccination is carried out for two different purposes: To protect individual travelers who may be exposed to yellow fever infection. Vaccination in these cases is recommended but not mandatory. As yellow fever is frequently fatal for those who have not been vaccinated, vaccination is recommended for all travelers intending to visit areas where there may be a risk of exposure to yellow fever, especially Abkhazia, break-away province of Georgia to protect countries from the risk of importing yellow fever virus.
