Become a registered NaTHNaC yellow fever centre with PharmaDoctor

Many pharmacies running a travel clinic with PharmaDoctor PGDs are also yellow fever vaccination centres. Read below to discover the benefits of offering this service and the simple steps required to help you get registered with NaTHNaC.

Why offer yellow fever vaccines?

Becoming an official NaTHNaC yellow fever vaccination centre enables travel clinics to offer a unique selling point to their patients. People travelling to destinations such as Sub-Saharan Africa and South America often need a certificate to prove that they have had a yellow fever vaccination to obtain a VISA and be able to enter the country. Only designated yellow fever vaccination centres can offer these certificates. From a traveller's point of view, patients who visit destinations that require them to get the yellow fever vaccine need a whole host of other vaccines and anti-malarials. Once a clinic or pharmacy becomes a fellow fever vaccination centre it is listed in the official NaTHNaC online database which ranks highly on Google, so clinics and pharmacies can expect online referrals via their website.
