OSHA Vaccination Requirements: Some of Our Available Vaccines

Hepatitis B

Hepatitis B is a viral infection that is contracted through infected blood and bodily fluids. Employers are required to make the Hepatitis B vaccine available to all employees that are at potential risk of occupational exposure to blood borne pathogens, this applies to but not limited to dental offices, skilled nursing facilities, hospitals and home health agencies, correctional officers and laundry workers.

The CDC recommends that vaccination is the best way to prevent contracting the disease and to prevent complication in the future such as liver cirrhosis and primary liver cancer. The vaccine is a 3 shot series that is administered over a 6 month period.

e7 Health can provide blood titers that can tell you if your employees are immune and don't need the vaccine.

Tuberculosis (TB)

Tuberculosis (TB) is a respiratory infection that is transmitted through respiratory droplets, such as coughing or sneezing. TB is now the second most common cause of death from infectious disease in the world after Human immunodeficiency virus/acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (HIV/ AIDS).

The best way to prevent coming in contact with TB is to wear correct Personal Protective Equipment and frequent hand washing. An important aspect of Personal Protective Equipment is a correctly fitting mask that can be determined with a Respiratory Fit Test. This test assures that the employee's mask fits correctly to provide maximum protection from respiratory droplets.

Employees that have the potential to come into contact with TB should have annual TB testing. This can be accomplished in 2 ways and e7 Health can help you achieve that. One way is the TB skin test, where a small amount of serum is injected under the patient's skin and then the patient has to return to the clinic within 48-72 hours to have the area examined by a trained professional to determine if it is a positive or negative test. Another option where the patient does not have to return to the clinic is a Quantiferon Gold- TB test. This test is a simple blood draw with results usually in 3-5 business days.

If either of these tests do come back positive, then CDC recommends a follow up chest X-ray and follow up with the patient's primary care provider. e7 Health can help to accommodate the chest X-ray so your employee has minimal wait.

e7 Health can help you to make sure your company is OSHA compliant. We usually have same day or next day appointments available for quick and easy access, or we can come to your place of business. Let us know how we can help!
