Yellow fever is a potentially fatal viral disease that is transmitted by mosquitoes in parts of South America and Africa. Yellow fever vaccination is required for travellers to these parts of the world.
The World Health Organization (WHO) provides updates on outbreaks of yellow fever around the world.
Yellow fever vaccination must be administered at a clinic designated as an approved yellow fever vaccination centre and this must be recorded on an International yellow fever vaccination certificate.
See the NSW Health Yellow fever vaccination information for a list of approved yellow fever vaccination centres.
