All new employees, who are working within a clinical environment, should undergo a pre-employment health assessment, this includes a review of immunisation history.
Employers need to be able to demonstrate that an effective employee immunisation programme is in place, and they have an obligation to arrange and pay for this service. This includes serology to confirm the immunity levels of the employee when no vaccination records are available.
The vaccines that need to be up to date are:
- Hepatitis B
The employees immunity can be checked and if a vaccination is needed this can be offered at a follow up appointment.
We also offer a wider range of pre-employment vaccinations and serology.
