Actually, if you read the cdc website it states:

"On March 3, 2008, the Argentina Ministry of Health (MOH) reported their first official human case of yellow fever for 2008 in Misiones Province. As of May 20, the Argentina MOH has reported 7 confirmed cases of yellow fever, including one death (all in Misiones Province). Prior to the onset of human cases, yellow fever disease was confirmed as the cause of death for at least one monkey found in Piñalito Park, San Pedro Department, Misiones Province, in the northeastern corner of Argentina, bordered by Brazil and Paraguay."

So, it has been found in humans this year. Still not a required vaccine and only recommended for those going to Iguazu Falls, or the other regions mentioned on the website.

And, proof of the vaccination IS required when you travel TO some countries from any AFFECTED area -- so do check about that if you have a multiple country itinerary OR you may live in a country that has a stricter policy.

Yellow Fever IS a very serious illness.. and for those who aren't familiar with all of its history: it is responsible for even thousands of deaths in the USA in the 1800's early 1900's until it was brought under control. It's the primary reason for mosquito control programs in the USA.
