If you are over 60 or have other health issues that make having a yellow fever vaccination unadvisable, then obtaining a “Certificate of Medical Contraindication to Vaccination” form is a useful precaution when planning to visit a country where a yellow fever certificate is required.

Certain other categories of people are also usually exempt from the vaccination requirement, such as infants under the age of one, pregnant women, and anyone allergic to eggs.

Some cruisers recommend waiting until you get to the country before having inoculations, as they are either free/cheap or not really necessary.
