Southeast Asia Travel an d Yellow Fever VaccinationWe're going to go to southeast Asia next year (Malaysia to Thailand to India to Laos to Vietnam to Taiwan) from the US, and our doctor said we're required to have a yellow fever vaccination. However, we've found sites saying it's not required if you're coming from the US. Does anyone know if we need it to travel between these countries?

5I believe you are only required to show proof of vaccination if you have recently traveled to a country where YF is prevelant. Even then, you probably won't be asked to show proof of vaccination....I have never been asked when moving between African countries or returning to Europe or Asia from an African country (where YF known to exist). I think this is correct, but stand corrected if wrong.

7SE Asia travel does not require a yellow fever vaccination/certificate, unless of course you are traveling from a yellow fever zone country (mostly South America and some African countries).

8A number of SEA countries require a yellow fever certificate if you are arriving form or (sometimes) have transited through a country that is infected.
Here is the US CDC information, which is what the PA should have used. That quick reference card probably listed every vaccine known to man.
Yellow Fever & Malaria Information, by Country. I find that the CDC list is usually the most up-to-date on official yellow fever requirements.
