    Yes I have. You can do it at other locations, you do not need to only go to Centra Care. I had my primary care doctor do mine but you can also get them done at CVS or Walgreens. Depending on if you have insurance it may be cheaper.

    Does anyone know if we do have a OLD copy of our immunizations from when we were a child if we can use that? Im trying to avoid getting shots or titers i do not need.

    As long as they fit what they are looking for. I had most of mine on my childhood shot record, and actually ended up uploading that same document for most of the immunizations they ask for.
    hope that helps!

    Yes you can use the old copy of our immunizations but some vaccines are valid for only 10 years like the TD (tetanus) vaccine. I had to re-take it cuz mine was taking more than 10 years ago. But yea apart from that I think your old copy will be fine.

    Hello guys: My doctor fill out the paper but my hepatitis B vaccines I had it in 2000. I don't know if I have to retake it? Any help? Also, I don't have the tetanus/diptheria and I had varicella when I was 1 year old. Where I can have this shots? I have medical plan, but I don't know where to go. HELPPPPPPPPPP

    sexyeve if you had your Hep B, which are 3 shots taken within the span of 6 months you are fine. I have been hearing that employers want Hep B done every 15 years but for nursing school you only need it once in your lifetime and besides your still within the 15 year mark anyway. For your other shots Centra Care has all the shots, test, and/or titers you could need. Within the email they sent you you should have a list of what they offer and for how much.

    I was at Centra Care yesterday and they were out of some of the vaccines like the Varicella. They called other locations too but they were out too. I got my vaccines and my physical done at lakeside occupational medical center in S orange blossom trail they have everything in stock. This is their address:

    2314 North Orange Blossom Trail Orlando, FL 32804

    Would anyone be willing to share orientation packet info with me? I just found out this morning that I'm starting Jan. 7th & I'm worried about being behind with all of our "to-do's". I was told I'd receive an email with all of the information soon, but I really want to try to get as much done before orientation as possible so any information would help! My email is as follows:

    bdicenzo I just sent you the email. First thing to do is the Background package which also includes Immunizations, finger prints, and drug testing. See you on the 16th for orientation!

    I have a few questions regarding the processes that we need to complete.

    First, where is a good place to get a physical? I don't have health insurance and was thinking of just using Centracare for everything since we're being offered a discount. Does anyone know how much the physical itself costs via centracare? Also, I lost my Valencia Student ID, would you advise getting it prior to going in for the physical?
