Vaccination for Doctors and Healthcare Workers
Healthcare workers, especially doctors, are exposed daily with many vaccine-preventable diseases such as hepatitis, influenza, meningitis, and typhoid (to name a few). Not only risking their well-being and health, unvaccinated doctors also play roles in transmitting these diseases to their unvaccinated patients. Paying special attention at vaccination for doctors, VaxCorp Indonesia© have tailored a special package to save your body from harm.
Worldwide, CDC has released their guidelines relating to vaccination for doctors and other healthcare workers. Healthcare workers include doctors, nurses, medical or nursing students, pharmacists, and hospital administrative staff. These vaccines are best administered before having direct contacts with patients during clinical rotations. However, it is not too late to schedule it now and receive the shots as soon as possible.
Healthcare Personnel Vaccination Recommendations – CDC 2014
- Hepatitis B – 3 dose series if previously unvaccinated, and don’t forget 1 booster shot every following 2 years.
- Influenza – 1 vaccine dose every year.
- Meningococcal – 1 vaccine dose every 5 years.
- Tetanus, Diphteria, and Pertussis – 1 booster shot every 10 years.
- Varicella – if you’ve never had chickenpox before
- MMR – if you’ve never had the disease before.
However, since everyone has a different vaccination history, VaxCorp Indonesia© can also tailor our package to your needs. The needs may include additional vaccination for other common vaccine-preventable diseases such as Typhoid Fever, or mass vaccination for medical students and healthcare company workers.
