Just trying to decipher the immunization requirements. Any input would be appreciated...
Tdap- I am to provide documentation of the completed primary serier (at least 5 DPT vaccines) and Tdap booster within the past 10 years. I am pretty sure I don't have this series. How far apart will they space these 6 shots and will I have time to get them all before August?
Hep B, I will check titer and if negative I need 3 doses of which 2 must be before August 1? How far apart are these supposed to be?
MMR- will check titer and if neg then 2 vaccinations
Flu- I thought we don't get flu shot until Fall. Do I get last years dose?
2 step TB test, one read after 7 days then 2nd test which is then read 48-72 hours later.
Chest xray with lab report if positive tb test.
Varicella - titer or 2 vaccinations.
Boy that sounds like many vaccinations in a short amount of time. Is this normal for other schools?
I am one that reacts to so many things. I am very nervous about bombarding my body with all of these at once.
I'd love to hear that others have done these same shots close together without incident. This is a big test of faith for me
LOL! Trying to follow my own advice and NOT WORRY! "I can do all things through Christ!"
Thanks for the replies!
