An official yellow fever uniform stamp holder has the authority
granted by the State of Wisconsin to administer yellow fever vaccine to
the public. An official yellow fever stamp holder authorization is
required to order and administer yellow fever vaccine. A uniform stamp
on the International Certificate of Vaccination or Prophylaxis (ICVP)
card is the international verification that an individual has been
vaccinated against yellow fever.
Due to the risk of serious adverse events that can occur following
yellow fever vaccine administration, providers should only vaccinate
persons who: 1) are at risk for exposure to yellow fever virus, or 2)
require proof of vaccination for country entry. To further minimize the
risk of serious adverse events, medical providers should carefully
observe the contraindications and consider the precautions to
vaccination to administration of yellow fever vaccine.
