  3. A supplementary polio revaccination is mandatory (or strongly recommended according to the countries) for travelers (of all ages) staying longer than 4 weeks in countries infected by wild poliovirus or circulating vaccine derived poliovirus (cVDPV) with potential risk of international spread. These recommendations follow the statement of the Emergency Committee under the International Health Regulations (2005) (IHR) regarding the international spread of poliovirus, and they are regularly adjusted to this statement. The revaccination consists of 1 dose of the vaccine administered between 4 weeks and 12 months before the traveler leaves the concerned countries. For detailed information: see: https://www.health.belgium.be/sites/default/files/uploads/fields/fpshealth_theme_file/css_9208b_polio_adultes.pdf and Institute of Tropical Medicine: Travel Medicine - Tropical and Import Pathology: http://www.itg.be/E/Article/additional-polio-vaccination
