Population: Washington State Yellow Fever providers and persons seeking yellow fever vaccination.
Project Description: Work was completed in collaboration with the licensing body (Health Systems Quality Assurance), the Board of Pharmacy and retail pharmacy organizations. Pharmacy collaborative agreements and provider licenses were reviewed to confirm eligibility for participation in the Yellow Fever Program. Other states were contacted for consultation regarding best practices. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention staff were consulted as well. Providers throughout the state were surveyed, information updated, and certification conformed to CDC standards. New certification stamps were issued, and a best practices protocol outlined.
Results/Lessons Learned:100% of provider responses were received and 100% of Washington Yellow Fever providers are in compliance with certification requirements.
