Warning if traveling to SoAmer especially Brazil !

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has advice for people thinking about traveling to most parts of Brazil: get vaccinated against yellow fever, or stay home.

Brazil is currently suffering a major outbreak of the hemorrhagic fever, and it’s striking places that don’t normally see the virus. Since the beginning of 2017, 237 people, including several tourists, have died after becoming infected with the virus.

Carried by mosquitoes, the virus has also spread to the very edge of Brazil’s largest cities, São Paulo and Rio de Janeiro, and has also infected mosquitoes on the Ilha Grande, a major tourist destination not far from Rio.

Speaking of Brazil:

Why the Demand for American Sperm Is Skyrocketing in Brazil

SÃO PAULO—With “jewel-tone eyes,” blond hair and a “smattering of light freckles,” Othello looks nothing like most Brazilians, the majority of whom are black or mixed-race. Yet the “Caucasian” American cashier, described in those terms by the Seattle Sperm Bank and known as Donor 9601, is one of the sperm providers most often requested by wealthy Brazilian women importing the DNA of young U.S. men at unprecedented rates.

Over the past seven years, human semen imports from the U.S. to Brazil have surged some 3,000% as more rich single women and lesbian couples select donors whose online profiles suggest they will yield light-complexioned and preferably blue-eyed children.

Everyone wants a “pretty kid” and for many parents in Brazil, where prejudice often runs deep, that means “the white biotype—light-colored eyes and skin,” said Susy Pommer, a 28-year-old data analyst from São Paulo who decided to get pregnant last year after a breast-cancer scare left her eager to raise a child right away with her partner, Priscilla.

The health service in Sao Paulo vaccinated us for free. It takes ten days for the vaccine to go into full effect. We got vaccinated because we were going to Mato Grosso, which the epidemic has missed this time, but were glad to have it when we got back to Sao Paulo, where it has shown up, killing monkeys in the parks.

You can exchange the white certificate they give you for the yellow international certificate at an office at the airport, which is only open normal business hours, so we were out of luck with that.

Paraguay has closed its borders to travelers from Brasil who do not have the yellow certificate.

I'd be more afraid of Zika. That's still around right?

Don't worry about that..there's a vaccine for it that is nearly completely effective and completely safe. Only an idiot wouldn't get themselves or their children vaccinated.

"Only an idiot wouldn't get themselves or their children vaccinated."

And because there are idiots, measles still exist.
