I will be going to UF. They sent me a form with all the immunizations that they need. Other than MMR, hepatitis, proof of varicella and a TB skin test, they also want a tetnus shot.
Well, actually on the form they send us, tetnus shot was listed as optional but later they called me and said that they want it anyway.
Just wondering what other schools require?

For Case, it's just Hep B. But anyways, because I had to volunteered in the hospital, I have taken almost every shot available!

The Hep B vaccination is a series of 3 injections over a period of 6 months. Do the schools require you to have the entire series done by the time you matriculate, or is it enough to have gotten to the 2nd shot?

It probably varies, but I'm curious.

The vaccination isn't complete or effective until you've received that third shot, but if you aren't doing any type of clinical work it won't matter much.

We just had to have our series started by the time we matriculated. Which reminds me, I'm due for my final in the series.

Perfect, i suggest you start getting the Hep B vaccination series ASAP soon or later they will ask you for it.

UNLV asked for the hepatitis B series (you can get away with having only 2 for enrollment, but you'll need to get your third one before you have any patient contact), two MMRs, one TD (tetanus diphtheria), and one tuberculosis skin test.
