Many careers and education paths have requisite or discretionary vaccination requirements. Proof of vaccination can be required for college admissions, mandated by federal or state agencies, or requested by employers. Additionally, many adults desire more protection when their career choices put them in close contact with the public, have potential for pathogen exposure, or other risks related to disease transmission.
Comply With College And University Vaccination Requirements
Most higher education institutions require incoming students and staff to be immunized for several communicable illnesses, and recommend additional vaccinations for certain program areas. These requirements are in place to protect the health and well-being of the campus community from preventable diseases. For example, the University of Minnesota system lists compulsory vaccination for COVID, diphtheria & tetanus (Tdap), measles, mumps and rubella (MMR).
Meet OSHA Workplace Immunization Requirements
The federal Occupational Health And Safety Administration (OSHA) requires & recommends vaccinations for certain industries such as healthcare. These in- clude protective measures including Hepatitis A & B, seasonal influenza, and others.
Some professions entail specific occupational hazards that increase the risk of exposure to certain diseases. Occupational health guidelines or recommenda- tions may exist for specific industries or job roles, providing guidance on rec- ommended vaccines to minimize risks.
Gain Protection And Fulfill Duty of Care
Individuals working in roles that involve caring for vulnerable populations such as the elderly, children, or immunocompromised individuals, may opt for additional vaccinations to ensure they are immunized against common infectious diseases and reduce the risk of transmission. This is critical in settings such as nursing or group homes, for example.
- Hepatitis A & B
- Meningococcal B
- Meningococcal ACYW
