Escape from the traveling routine is one of life's best pleasures. Even more so in a place like the Amazon, where contact with nature could not be closer. However, for the party not to finish early, it is always good to take some precautions. And when you think of the world's largest rainforest, you can not forget the vaccination booklet.
After the outbreak of the last year, all eyes turned to yellow fever. The disease, which is transmitted by mosquito bites Haemagogus and Sabethe, is caused by viruses. But it's not just the names that frighten you, because the symptoms can range from fever and muscle aches to internal bleeding and kidney and liver failure.
Because of this, for anyone who wants to travel to the Amazon, the International Certificate of Vaccination and Prophylaxis (CIVP) is required. It alone proves the vaccination of yellow fever and other diseases. In order to withdraw the CIVP, the issue is made by Anvisa in operating centers throughout Brazil. It is good to remember that the vaccine needs to be taken at least ten days before the trip. The options are a single dose that will protect you for the rest of your life, or a regular dose that lasts about a year
