Yellow Fever: Do i need the vaccination?

Patient: If I do not receive a yellow fever vaccination, and travel to Ghana, how likely am I to contract the virus?

 

 

Doctor: Ghana is an endemic region for yellow fever and thus in case you do not get the vaccination the chances of you contracti ng the infection is high. Moreover you will not be able to travel without having valid vaccination documentation to this area. I hope this helps/
