Vaccinations & Titers for My Employees
Vaccinations and titers appointments are available at Mobile Health for your employee clearances nationwide. Online scheduling and electronic medical records help document proof of immunity for personnel compliance requirements.
Employees that must prove immunity:
If you are a healthcare agency, a school, or a public health related organization, chances are you are required to keep records of your employees’ proof of immunity against certain communicable diseases. This requirement is generally mandated by local Department of Health agencies and accreditation organizations.
The dangers of not having a properly vaccinated workforce include fines for noncompliance, loss of accreditation, and most severely, the spread of highly contagious illnesses. These compliance requirements are in place to protect vulnerable populations such as the elderly, sick, and those with auto-immune deficiencies.
Organizations who generally follow these requirements include:
- Home Health Agencies (LHCSA, CHHA, MLTC)
- Nursing Homes and Assisted Living Facilities
- After School Programs
- Schools, Colleges, and Universities
- Workforce Development Organizations
Methods to Prove Immunity:
Before hiring a new employee, it is important to know which immunities are required for their job function. Common viruses your employees must be immune to include: measles, mumps, rubella, varicella, and influenza. It is recommended to check with your compliance department to better understand all the immunization requirements based on your organization’s location and industry standards.
An employee’s immunization history can be found in their proof of immunity documents, which include any past vaccinations or blood titers. If there is missing documentation, it is suggested that a titer be performed to determine the count of antibodies present in the blood draw. The number of antibodies counted will determine if the person is immune to a specific antigen (virus). If the antibody count is below a certain number, they are not immune and are at risk for contracting and spreading the disease.
If the titers show a lack of immunity, then a vaccine is necessary to prove immunity and stay compliant with regulations. Some vaccines are available in specific combinations that could be administered together. These include:
- MMR (measles, mumps, rubella)
- MMRV (measles, mumps, rubella, varicella)
- TDaP (tetanus , diphtheria, pertussis)
- Td (tetanus , diphtheria)
Both up-to-date vaccinations and titers are acceptable as proof of immunity for most regulatory organizations.
