No more yellow fever requirement for travellers from SA to Zambia

Cape Town - Travellers heading to Zambia from South Africa will no longer be required to get a yellow fever vaccination, the Department of Health has announced. 

Tourism Update reports that the decision was made at the World Health Assembly in Geneva on Friday and lifted with immediate effect. 

According to the Lusaka Times, the decision comes after the World Health Organisation confirmed that Zambia had low yellow fever exposure status. 

The decision is expected to boost travel to the region somewhat.
