The certificate shown in the link posted by WeBeGone is not being used for those who get their vaccinations now.
According to the CDC website http://www.cdc.gov/mmwr/preview/mmwrhtml/mm5651a4.htm
"Notice to Readers: Requirements for Use of a New International Certificate of Vaccination or Prophylaxis for Yellow Fever Vaccine. As of December 15, 2007, a new International Certificate of Vaccination or Prophylaxis (ICVP) has replaced the old certificates (1). The new certificate provides space for potential certification of additional types of vaccination or prophylaxis to protect against newly emerging or reemerging diseases or other events of public health importance. However, the only vaccination currently required to be indicated on the ICVP is for yellow fever.
Yellow fever vaccine is required under IHR 2005 by certain countries for entry, and the new ICVP is required for any yellow fever vaccination administered beginning December 15, 2007. Persons vaccinated before that date may use the old certificate until it expires 10 years from the date of vaccination."
The new form has "CDC 731 (formerly PHS-731)" on the bottom.
The top of the old form read "International Certificate of Vaccination or Revaccination Against Yellow Fever"; the new form reads "International Certificate of Vaccination or Prophylaxis."
I got my yellow fever vaccine in June 2008 and it was recorded on the new certificate.
