  • Description:
    Have you ever wondered how to prepare for and stay healthy during international travel? This information and much more can be found on the National Center for Emerging and Zoonotic Infectious Dieases's (NCEZID) Division of Global Migration and Quarantine (DGMQ) Travelers’ Health website (www.cdc.gov/travel) where you can access the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention's (CDC)

    Health Information for International Travel: The Yellow Book. This authoritative resource provides travel health recommendations for health care providers to help international travelers prepare for trips, stay healthy while abroad, and monitor their health upon return.

    The Yellow Book is continuously revised in order to remain up-to-date with international travel trends and the shifting target of infectious disease risks. A new print edition of the Yellow Book is published every two years and updates to the print edition are posted regularly on the Travelers’ Health website. As the only US government source for health recommendations for travelers, the Yellow Book serves as a valuable reference for health care providers, travelers, and travel industries around the world.

    CDC Health Information for International Travel began in 1967 as a small gray booklet focusing on vaccine requirements for travel, particularly yellow fever vaccine. In later editions, the book’s cover transitioned to a distinctive bright yellow, thus giving the publication the nickname “Yellow Book.”
