Outbreak of yellow fever causes countries to require vaccination of Brazilians

Yellow fever cases that are scaring Brazil have also left many other countries. Now, new countries have demanded the vaccine against yellow fever for travelers coming from Brazil. According to Anvisa and the Pan American Health Organization, these countries are: Panama, Nicaragua, Venezuela, Costa Rica, Ecuador and Cuba.

Now, to enter these places, you must present the International Certificate of Vaccination or Prophylaxis (CIVP) against yellow fever. The rule applies to all travelers over 9 months of age, including those who have been connecting here for more than 12 hours.

To be accepted, the yellow fever vaccination record must be made, at least 10 days before the trip. Those who already have the vaccine must present the vaccination card to acquire the certificate. Only this document is accepted under those circumstances. The national vaccination card must contain all information on the vaccine, such as date of administration and lot, signature of the person responsible for the application and identification of the health facility.

The issue of the certificate is free and can be obtained at ports, airports and borders, at the Anvisa Traveler Health Guidance Center. It is also possible to obtain the certificate in units of the Unified Health System (SUS) accredited, such as health posts, hospitals and accredited clinics. In order to issue the document, you must bring a vaccination card and an identity document, such as an RG, passport or CNH.

Recognize the differences between the symptoms of rhinitis and sinusitis

Recognize the differences between the symptoms of rhinitis and sinusitis

There is no otolaryngologist who does not listen at least once a day to this phrase: "I have rhinitis and also sinusitis." The two "ites" always come together in the patient's head (no pun intended), like two problems in one. Since the difference between the two is nebulous for most of the public, people prefer to state that they suffer from both, just in case.
