Yellow fever (YF) vaccine can only be administered at centres that are designated by the health administration for the territory in which it is situated:
“State Parties shall designate specific yellow fever vaccination centres (YFVCs) within their territories in order to ensure the quality and safety of the procedures and materials employed.” (from International Health Regulations, May 2005, Annex 7.2.f (external website)).
Public Health Scotland (PHS) has the legislative authority to undertake the designation of YFVCs in Scotland. The PHS Yellow Fever programme provides oversight of the registration for designation, renewal of designation, training, standards and audit processes of all YFVCs in Scotland.
Our information pack sets out the conditions of registration for YFVCs in Scotland and provides information for those planning to become or already are YFVCs.
