Yellow Fever Vaccination

An international certificate of vaccination for yellow fever is now required to enter the Ecuadorian provinces of Sucumbios and Orellana where many of our Amazon rainforest programs take place. Although no cases of yellow fever have been reported in Ecuador in the last 20 years, the Ministry of Health has issued a yellow fever vaccination to all travellers visiting Orellana and Sucumbios Provinces, starting March 1st, in order to avoid any possible contamination to a yellow fever outbreak in some areas of the Brazilian Amazon jungle. All travelers entering the mentioned provinces will be required to present their vaccination certificate.
