It is mandatory that all personnel bring their shot record or medical records (with immunizations included) with them. Occupational Health will only accept an official, properly documented immunization record or the expanded version of MEDPROS. PPD and Titer documentation must include the date of the reading as well as the results.
The following is a list of required immunizations:
MMR - Must have had 1 as an adult or 2 as a child after age 1. Proof presented as immunity or titer.
Varicella - Positive verbal history required. If unsure of Varicella history, then a titer is required. If the titer is negative, then the individual will be required to have the Varicella vaccination.
Hepatitis B Series - Requirement is a series of 3 shots or positive titer. Dates must be documented for all three shots. If positive for Hep B, documentation of a positive HBsAB with the date included is required. This is mandatory for all personnel with potential exposure to BBF.
PPD - A PPD is required within the past 12 months. A positive PPD requires one negative chest X-ray, the report of which must be documented in the medical record. Subsequent chest X-rays are needed if you are symptomatic.
Polio - Optional, but desired
Diphtheria/Tetanus - Optional, but desired
