Required Immunizations

Anyone who has the potential to come into contact with patients are at risk for exposure and transmitting of infectious diseases. Working in a hospital requires you to be current on many vaccinations. As you pursue a career in health care, it's important to keep a file of your immunization records. Schools and health care organizations require this information.

To shadow at Bryan Medical Center, history of immunity/immunizations for the following diseases is required:

  • COVID-19 proof of vaccination
  • Flu shot (required September 1-April 30)
  • Mumps, Rubella, Rubeola (MMR)
  • Varicella or past history of chickenpox
  • Hepatitis B
  • Negative tuberculin (TB) skin test or follow-up care for previously positive TB skin test (required to be completed within the last two years)
  • DPT/TDAP (Diphtheria, Pertussis, Tetanus)

If you are job shadowing, you will be required to complete paperwork to tell the current status of these immunizations.
