Hi! I’m apart of the Winter term cohort & haven’t received an email from Immunitrax :/ not sure where to even start. I’m afraid to buy books before I get the whole vaccination thing sorted out... 

My understanding is that we will be able to get into immunotrax once we get our acemapp email which will be on nov 1st?
 

Hi!

Have you emailed Sheryl at all about the ACEMAPP invitation? Ours for fall term were sent out August 10th and I think they extended our date that everything had to be submitted. It's a really easy program to upload to and it takes about 5 business days for things to be reviewed. What are you needing to sort out with the vaccinations?

Incorrect date

I haven’t because I thought ACEMAPP would send that out automatically like around nov. 1st? Should I email her tho? 
 

Sort things out like IDK if what I have so far works for what they need. & like the HEP / MMR vaccinations are tricky with the time interval in between shots :/ not sure if I’ll have time yk

Oh, if its not even time for it to be sent out yet, don't contact her LOL I assumed it was late or something. I think the check off should tell you what dates are needed between hep vaccines. Have you had your titers checked to see what you need?

Okay I’ll wait till then and nope. How do I get that checked? I don’t have insurance/ healthcare provider atm either 🙃

Do you recommend buying supplies/books now or waiting until at least vaccinations are submitted and reviewed?

I just had my doctor order labs for me. Health insurance is on the list of things that need to be submitted as well. Maybe an email to her would be better now to find out what steps to take to make sure you have everything you need! She is very helpful!

I was so excited and bought everything so soon 🤣 like, I started buying right after I got accepted haha. It's a pretty big chunk of money out of pocket at first so I feel like spacing it out helped me to be less overwhelmed financially...til it came to those book bundles!

Can I ask what labs you had? Like if you know the names of them? Was it for the antibodies? Just so I can look into it a bit...

Yeah! I needed antibody testing for my hep b, varicella because history of chicken pox isn't accepted, and my tb test. All a quick blood draw.

So was it just one blood draw that could apply to all three of those antibody?

Yeah I think she took like 2 or 3 vials but it was one poke LOL

Did you order all of it online & had it sent to your address or the schools’a address?

I had my books shipped to my house, they asked us to have them sent to the school though. I just missed that part.

I’m trying to sign up for VerifyStudents to get to Immunitrax but I saw this in one of docs she sent that says:

your drug screen test must be done within 24 hrs of logging onto Corporate Screening”

what does that mean? I don’t want to do the drug screen test yet :/.. 

Yeah , Im confused too.. On the Health and Safety Checklist next to the drug screen it says, 

"Your drug screen must be cone within 24 hours of loggin onto corporate screening and must be completed by the deadline or you will be dropped from the nursing program"

Not sure if you’ve signed up already but once you enter everything, they give you like a date via email you have to get it done by. (5-10 days)
