Vaccination is the best way to prevent yellow fever, a viral disease that is transmitted through the bite of certain species of mosquitoes and can be fatal. In Argentina, the vaccine is administered free of charge. A single dose is enough to protect yourself through life.
Who should be vaccinated
- Those who reside or are traveling to risky areas of Argentina, such as the provinces of Misiones and Formosa and some departments of Corrientes, Chaco, Salta and Jujuy.
If you are about to travel to other destinations, it is recommended to consult the consulate of the corresponding country, or call the free number of the Secretary of Health Government: 0800-222-0651.
