The Yellow Book is written primarily for health professionals, but is a useful resource for anyone interested in healthy international travel. The 2016 edition of the Yellow Book features comprehensive updates, a variety of new sections, and expanded disease maps (including country-level yellow fever vaccine recommendation maps).

This 2016 edition offers the US government’s most current health recommendations for travelers to international destinations, including disease risk maps, country-specific guidelines, and vaccine requirements and recommendations.
