Working or shadowing in a hospital requires health care workers to be current on many vaccinations. Immunizations are required for the protection of the health care worker and our patients. As you proceed with a career in health care, it will be important to keep a file of your immunization records. Schools and health care employers will require this information. All job shadowing candidates on the hospital campus and clinics will be required to complete paperwork attesting to the current status of the following immunizations:
- Influenza or flu shot (Sept. 1 through April 30 (These dates may vary based on the incidence of influenza cases in the region and state)
- DPT/TDaP (Diphtheria, Pertussis, Tetanus)
- Hepatitis B
- Inactivated Poliovirus (Polio Vaccine)
- MMR (Measles, Mumps, Rubella)
- Varicella (Chicken Pox)
