Procedure for becoming a designated Yellow Fever Vaccination Centre in England, Wales and Northern Ireland
The Department of Health and the Welsh Assembly have devolved the responsibility for administering YFVCs in England, Wales and Northern Ireland to the National Travel Health Network and Centre.
As part of NaTHNaC's remit of “Protecting the health of British travellers”, one aim is to ensure high standards of yellow fever vaccination and procedure through a programme of registration, training, standards and audit.
The following page explains the designation procedures for centres in England, Wales and Northern Ireland.
The NaTHNaC YFVC Initiative
New Centre Designation Process
- NaTHNaC have revised the Yellow Fever Vaccination Centre (YFVC) Information Pack.
An information pack (730KB PDF) on becoming a YFVC is available that contains full details of requirements for registration and an application form. In summary, the registered medical practitioner responsible for the centre will be required to ensure that:
- The centre is designated
- The staff are trained and competent in the safe administration and use of the yellow fever vaccine
- Appropriate records are maintained
- Vaccine storage is correct
- NaTHNaC staff are granted access to the clinic or its records
If you are experiencing problems dowloading the pack from this site, then please write or send an email to the Yellow Fever Vaccination Centre Administration Office.
Application forms can be downloaded from the information pack. Completed application
forms should be returned to the address below.
Please use the dedicated email address given below for communications

Centres that become designated will receive a letter of confirmation of designation and a YFVC identification number. This number should be used in any communication with NaTHNaC and must appear on the YFVC stamp used on International Certificates of Vaccination against yellow fever. Established centres will receive identification numbers in due course.
Queries regarding the application process can be made by e-mail, NaTHNaC@uclh.nhs.uk, or by telephone on 02034475943.
