The Central Placement Office is aware of the current shortage of Hepatitis B and Twinrix Vacciniations, and its impact on students completing their Practice Requirements Records. If you are unable to receive the sufficient amount of doses to indicate blood work immunity, you can opt to provide a signed note form your Healthcare Provider that indicates the following:

  • They acknowledge the fact that the student is unable to receive the necessary doses for Hepatitis B immunity.
  • The student is safe to attend practice.

Only a signed HCP note that indicates above will be accepted in the case that you are unable to receive the necessary vaccinations for Hepatitis B.
