Yellow Fever Vaccination Center Certification

A uniform stamp on the International Certificate of Vaccination or Prophylaxis (ICVP) card is the international verification that an individual has been vaccinated against yellow fever. Only an official yellow fever uniform stamp holder has the authority granted by the State of Kansas to administer the yellow fever vaccine to the public. Authorization is required to order and administer the yellow fever vaccine. 

Vaccine Eligibility

Due to the risk of serious adverse events that can occur following yellow fever vaccine administration, providers should only vaccinate persons who: 1) are at risk for exposure to yellow fever virus, or 2) require proof of vaccination for country entry. To further minimize the risk of serious adverse events, medical providers should carefully observe the contraindications and consider the precautions to vaccination and to the administration of the yellow fever vaccine.
