Yellow Fever Vaccination Center Certification

State law (Administrative Code, Title 51. Public Health-Sanitary Code, Section 905) in accord with the 1977 mandate of the federal government (United States Public Health Service Centers for Disease Control and Prevention or "CDC") requires:

  1. that a physician in non-federal medical facilities offering and administering yellow fever vaccine to patients be certified by the state Office of Public Health (OPH) to do so and
  2. that the certified physician use an official stamp to validate that the vaccine was given as documented in the international travel certificate.

This OPH program carries out the requirements for certification as set forth above and supplies the official stamp to those physicians certified to use it in Louisiana.

Yellow Fever Certification Forms

Applications and reports should be sent to the OPH regional office in the region in which the physician practices.  Questions regarding this program may be directed to any Office of Public Health regional medical director or to the program co-coordinator in the OPH Central Office.
