Individuals receiving a yellow fever vaccination must be issued with an International Certificate of Vaccination or Prophylaxis (ICVP). The World Health Organization (WHO) set out clearly how an ICVP should be completed. ICVPs that do not meet WHO standards may cause travellers difficulties, when documentation is checked on entering countries with a yellow fever vaccination certificate requirement.
NaTHNaC have updated the online guide ‘Getting to grips with the International Certificate of Vaccination or Prophylaxis for yellow fever: a practical guide’. Health professionals are recommended to access this free resource if involved in administering yellow fever vaccinations. Reflecting on this learning activity can contribute towards a health professional's continuing professional development.
