The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has just released a revised version of its so-called Yellow Book, long a recognized leader in travel health information. Revised at 2-year intervals, the newest edition includes new information on scuba diving safety, high altitude travel, travelers with special needs, and traveling with children. Other sections discuss new recommendations for preventing malaria, changes in vaccine recommendations for travelers, and changes in recommendations for insect repellent use. An expanded section on motion sickness and travel-related injury is included, as well.
The new Yellow Book can be ordered from the Public Health Foundation at 1 (877) 252-1200 or visit http://bookstore.phf.org/prod159.htm. The contents are also included on a companion Web site, http://www.cdc.gov/travel/yb/index.htm.
