    No. Most employers will draw a titer to verify immunity once offered employment. If they will not draw it for you, you can either provide them a copy of your medical record as proof of immunization OR get your own titer drawn and provide them a copy of the results.

    I've only seen the hepatitis B vaccine as a voluntary vaccine where we can sign a waver if we choose not to get it. I know I was vaccinated as a child but the clinic that I had it done at was absolutely horrible dealing with for records that I just signed the waiver for nursing school. I later allowed an employer to draw the titer as proof.
