Brazil: Millions vaccinated after yellow fever outbreak

A yellow fever outbreak apparently caused by mosquito migrations has struck Brazil, killing over a dozen people.

In Brazil, more than 20 million people are being vaccinated against yellow fever after an outbreak of the disease.

At least 15 people have died in the southeastern state of Minas Jerais in the last month, and a public health emergency has been declared.
