Travel Vaccines including Yellow Fever VaccineFrequently Used Websites
Many countries require specific travel immunizations for visitors. International Health Regulations require that yellow fever vaccine be administered only at designated Yellow Fever Vaccination Centers. In the United States the responsibility for designating Yellow Fever Vaccination Centers has been delegated to State Health Departments.
In Michigan, health care providers who wish to purchase and administer yellow fever vaccine must complete the Yellow Fever Provider Application (DCH-1292) and be approved by the Michigan Department of Community Health (MDCH). Sanofi pasteur will not allow the purchase of yellow fever vaccine by health care providers unless they are approved Uniform Stamp holders.
Yellow Fever Provider Application (DCH-1292)
Mail the completed form to:
Michigan Department of Community Health
incomplete information will be returned to the applicant. Applicants are also required to attach a narrative description of the supervising physician's experience in providing travel immunizations and their reason(s) for applying to be a travel immunization/yellow fever vaccine provider (see Yellow Fever Provider Application ).
Adverse events reported to providers after vaccination should be submitted to the Vaccine Adverse Events Reporting System (VAERS) according to state guidelines. Private providers should report all adverse events directly to VAERS, and also notify MDCH.
Yellow fever vaccine produced by sanofi pasteur is obtained directly from sanofi pasteur, the sole distributor in the United States. For information, prices, and ordering procedures, contact sanofi pasteur. Please note that providers are not able to order yellow fever vaccine unless they have been authorized by the Michigan Department of Community Health.
To comply with the International Health Regulations (2005), the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) revised the International Certificate of Vaccination or Prophylaxis (ICV) in 2007.
Currently, yellow fever is the only disease under the International Health Regulations (2005) for which proof of vaccination may be required for travelers. Previously issued certificates remain acceptable proof of vaccination against yellow fever as long as the certificate is valid. Travelers should keep the ICV with their passports at all times.
The new certificates are available for purchase from the Government Printing Office bookstore.
