In brief: Yes ? need?

The yellow fever vaccine becomes effective ~10 days after administration and is expected to remain so for ten years.
If traveling in a yf area you may need a yf vaccine certificate so getting another yf vac may be needed if you have not kept up with yours. For specifics see: www.Cdc.Gov/vaccines/vpd-vac/yf/default.Htm.
