Yellow Fever Vaccines in Lubbock, Texas 

The yellow fever vaccine YF-Vax® vaccine is the preferred yellow in the U.S. Yellow Fever vaccines generate immunity after ten days. The Stamaril® vaccine is no longer available in the U.S. but remains available internationally. The YF-Vax vaccine is offered in Lubbock.

As of March 18, 2023, the International Certificates of Vaccination or Prophylaxis (ICVP) are available at certified vaccination centers in Lubbock, Texas, following vaccination.

Travel Vaccine Coadministration

With some exceptions (PCV13, PPSV23, PCV13, MenACWY-D [Menactra], and Menactra and DTaP), commonly used vaccines can safely and effectively be given simultaneously, says the CDC. However, limited data suggest that the coadministration of the yellow fever vaccine with MMR vaccines might decrease the immune response and should be separated by thirty days.
