Do you still need proof of a yellow fever vaccination to enter Brazil? I am flying to Sao Paolo from Geneva, Switzerland.

It’s not compulsory for Sao Paulo unless you’ve been to any of a pretty comprehensive list of countries that potentially carry the disease.

Hope that helps!
Also, if you haven’t been to any of those listed countries in the last three months, and if you’re just staying in Sao Paulo city, The World Health Organization says that you don’t need the yellow fever vaccination (but they recommend that you do get it if visiting other parts of Sao Paulo state). More info here: http://www.who.int/ith/chapters/ith2012en_countrylist.pdf.
There is no need for proving vaccination right now.
Allthough it is good to have vaccination against yellow fever
Personnally I am more concerned with DENGUE … as there is a new outbreak the last weeks here in Brazil
so, ALWAYS MAKE SURE YOU HAVE REPELLENT at hand to protect yourself against mosquitos
