Yellow Fever Vaccinations in Tyler, Texas

Yellow fever is a vaccine-preventable disease, says the World Health Organization (WHO). Proof of previous yellow fever vaccination is required by about thirty countries, such as Brazil, and encouraged by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) when visiting certain African countries. Yellow Fever (Stamaril, YF-Vax) vaccination generates durable immunity after ten days.

The International Certificates of Vaccination or Prophylaxis (ICVP) are available at certified yellow fever centers following vaccination. In 2023, vaccination against yellow fever and, in some countries, polio must be documented using the ICVP. International travelers should check the CDC's webpage for their destination to learn if vaccination is required before entry.
