Yellow fever jab

Famous for its enormous icebergs, towering glaciers and shimmering summer light, Antarctica offers some of the planet's most awe inspiring landscapes. The North Atlantic and Arctic evoke images of sparse snow covered lands, but when summer comes it bursts with colour and life.

Yellow fever jab

Postby jessv » Sat Jul 19, 2014 1:06 pm

My travel agent told me that some areas of Argentina require you to have the yellow fever jab and show evidence of this when entering the country. I am travelling via buenos aires then straight to Ushuaia. Did anyone else need the yellow fever jab for Ushuaia and buenos aires?

No. You're not going to be near the jungle or mosquitos so don't worry about YF.

If you are traveling from Africa, they may ask you to have the vaccination slip.
All and all, it's a good vaccine to have,among with 2-3 others.
