How to become an approved vaccine provider
Process to become an approved provider
- Contact SA Health's Immunisation Section as you will be required to submit documentation as part of the approval process
- You will then be sent an information pack, which includes mandatory forms that must be completed and returned to SA Health's Immunisation Section.
- Once the forms are received and approved, SA Health will organise for Vaccine Fridge Data Loggers to assess your immunisation fridge/s. Fridge stability needs to be tested in accordance to National Vaccine Storage Guidelines.
- If fridge stability is confirmed, the medical centre is declared a Yellow Fever provider and will receive a letter of confirmation and a World Health Organisation (WHO) approved identification stamp. The organisation will also be added to the Approved Yellow Fever providers for South Australia (PDF 91KB) list.
- Approved providers can then contact Sanofi Pasteur (the Yellow Fever vaccine distributor) to arrange vaccine supply and the yellow International Certificate of Vaccination or Prophylaxis booklets. These are the only valid document to record Yellow Fever vaccination under International Health Regulations.
