Yellow Fever Vaccination

The yellow fever vaccination is recommended for people who are travelling to an area where yellow fever is found including parts of Sub – Saharan, Africa, South America, Central America and Trinidad in the Caribbean. Any country that requires you to have a certificate for Yellow Fever vaccination to prove you have been vaccinated.

This is known as International Certificate of Vaccination or Prophylaxis (ICVP), you should be vaccinated at least 10 days before you travel to allow enough time for the vaccine to work.

The Yellow Fever vaccination is NO longer available at this practice, please check the country information on the TravelHealthPro website or with a Yellow fever vaccination centre to see if you need a certificate for the area you are travelling to.


Travelling in Europe

If you are travelling to Europe the EU has published useful information for travellers on the European website.
