January 25, 2018 0 By Christian Gutierrez and Priscilla Gutierrez

Last week without knowing about the huge outbreak is having yellow fever in Brazil, I Pri, went “renovate” my yellow fever vaccine here in Barcelona, since my last was in 2008 (time he had to take the vaccine every 10 years), but I found that now no longer need and that there is more expiration date, that is, those who have taken once, do not need more.

I was happy and sad, glad I did not need to take again, but sad for not having researched better about it before and have paid the query cost 40 euros, only for medical tell me this. I'm glad I was only, because as Chris had taken the last in 2015 theoretically it would need to take again only 2025, but now the rules have changed, also you do not need to take more. But even reading in several places that did not renew CIVP (International Certificate of Vaccination or Prophylaxis) to travel, I renewed for free, for the new expiration date. Here's how I did.

I decided “renovate” the vaccine because like I anticipate, to have no problem on any trip, then so I'm alerting our readers, those who already have the yellow fever vaccine and already has CIVP need not take again, who has not CIVP and will travel to any country requiring vaccine:

Follow these steps certified international yellow fever vaccine:

1Step ° - Take the required vaccine.

Child / minor teen 18 years

lower the presence of the child or adolescent is not required to 18 (eighteen) years when parents or guardians of this request the submission of its CIVP the Guidance Centers for Travelers' Health.

For those who are abroad, as we, I followed the steps below, even already having CIVP, and the doctor saying he did not, because all airports already had the information and reading in several sites that do not need the 2nd copy of CIVP, even so I sent an email to the Brazilian consulate here in Barcelona, requesting the duplicate with the validity for life, to have no problem to enter other countries that require this vaccine.:

For the issuance of the 2nd pathway International Certificate of Vaccination or Prophylaxis (CiVPi) Brazilian traveler who is outside, citizens should:
